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!

All students will receive a NOLS Wilderness First Responder Certification.  Current EMT's will receive 48 Hours CEU's and a Wilderness EMT Certification.

The Wilderness Medical Society designates this live activity for a maximum of 44 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. Each physician should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

This course has been approved for Fellowship of the Academy of Wilderness Medicine (FAWM) credits through the Wilderness Medical Society. Actual credits awarded depend on personal credit needs and history.
