The Graduate Certificate in Extreme Medicine is an online interprofessional program designed to prepare healthcare professionals to provide medical services in austere conditions. The core didactic courses provide foundational instruction in human factors, crisis resource management, efficiency of highly skilled teams, and theory and ethics of care in humanitarian crises.
In addition to the certificate courses, students may take one or more optional on-ground experiential practicum courses offered in an executive format. Experiential courses enable students to complete intensive, hands-on training and apply the principles covered in the didactic courses. This program is offered in collaboration with World Extreme Medicine (WEM).
