This is a quick overview of some continuing education opportunities coming up. I’ll be co-instructing a NOLS Wilderness Medicine course with my good friend Sara Nelson, MD this October 20-22, 2017 near Flagstaff, Maine. I’ll also help teach an anesthesia continuing education conference for CRNAs with Cornerstone Anesthesia Conferences from February 26 – March 1, 2018 in Scottsdale, Arizona.
NOLS Wilderness Medicine course overview:
I’ve taught for NOLS Wilderness Medicine since 2007 and the course Dr Nelson and I are offering this fall is a Wilderness Medicine for the Professional Practitioner course. This course is open to the general healthcare community and teaches clinicians how apply existing medical knowledge in a new way to manage a patient in a wilderness, remote or disaster setting. This course is hands-on, fast-paced and super fun! We’re offering this course at a unique destination location: the Flagstaff Hut of the Maine Huts and Trails network. This hut is 1.8 miles from the nearest trail head and is a bit more than a “hut.” Think lakeside beautiful log cabin with vaulted ceilings, wood stoves, leather couches and fully staffed commercial kitchen. The huts run completely off the grid yet have heated bunk rooms, hot showers and full electricity. All meals and lodging are included in course fees. 16 hours of AMA PRA Category 1 CME is included. Check the links below for more details.

Cornerstone Anesthesia Conferences overview:
I’m so excited to contribute to Cornerstone Anesthesia Conferences’ February/March 2018 Scottsdale, AZ conference! The “Anesthesia Update in Desert Oasis” is going to be a fantastic opportunity for CRNAs to earn 20 CE credits through the American Association for Nurse Anesthetists (AANA). I’m in the line up to teach 5 topics at this conference: 1. Ketamine, 2. Neuromuscular Blockade and Reversal, 3. Updates in Airway Management, 4. Leadership in Emergencies and 5. Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS): Updates. It’s going to be EPIC!
The conference will be hosted at the Double Tree Resort by Hilton Hotel Paradise Valley. You’ll receive 20 Class A CE credits, 6 pharmacology credits and a full breakfast buffet each morning as part of the conference. All of the lectures are based on CPC Core Modules.
