NOVEMBER 9-13, 2024


Learn to improvise equipment, deal with challenging environments, and make difficult decisions with confidence on your Wilderness Upgrade for Medical Professionals (WUMP) course.


You'll learn to apply your urban emergency care knowledge to the wilderness through case studies and practical scenarios with mock patients. Our seasoned instructors will guide you through five days of intense, hands-on learning to make sure you are prepared in the wilderness.


You'll learn both in the classroom and in outdoor settings regardless of weather, so come prepared for wet, muddy, cold or hot environments!
