Description
WLS:MP is a practical hands-on certification course originally developed at the University of Utah School of Medicine in 1997 that teaches medical professionals how to manage medical and trauma emergencies when traditional medical facilities are not readily accessible.  WLS:MP was developed to create a standard in treating injuries and illnesses in a wilderness environment. Topics include: patient assessment, treatment guidelines for life support until definitive care or evacuation is available, and techniques and guidelines for evacuation. All registrants who pass the written exam will receive the WLS:MP certification that is valid for four years.
