WMS Winter Meeting - Wilderness & Mountain Medicine
The meeting will be held February 20-25, 2009 at The Canyons, a beautiful ski resort location in Park City, Utah. The Canyons is Utah's largest ski and snowboard resort, and is the recipient of legendary Utah powder.
The program, which is accredited for a maximum of 24.75 hours of credits towards Fellowship in the Academy of Wilderness Medicine and approved for a maximum of 22/25 AMA PRA Category 1 credits, is another assembly of experts who will deliver state of the art education and entertaining evening programs, such as "STEEP - Big Mountains and Extreme Skiing," "Everest ER - Medicine, Climbing and Guiding in the Himalaya," and "Passion and Compassion - Climbing and Medicine: One Man's Story." As is customary for the WMS, there will be plentiful workshops, and the entire conference is fronted by preconferences and optional workshops, including Advanced Wilderness Life Support (AWLS), a Level 1 Avalanche Course, and an Introduction to Backcountry Touring.
Please join me and a stellar distinguished faculty for what promises to be an exciting and memorable educational experience. See you in Park City!
