Adventures Outside of the ED – A Wilderness Medicine Experience at ACEP17

At ACEP Scientific Assembly 2017 in Washington DC, the Wilderness Medicine (WM) Section will be hosting a fantastic new event: “Adventures Outside of the ED.” Plans are to dedicate a 30’x50’ space in the exhibit hall for physician wellness and wilderness medicine education. There are several activities we have in mind, and are reaching out for section members to participate. 

- Ongoing medical scenarios created and proctored by WM section members will be performed
   by attendees. Various settings, illnesses & injuries that are limited only by your imagination!
- Hands-on demonstrations of WM standard and improvisational techniques
   (splinting, litters, patient packaging, etc.)
- Educational presentations, latest research, and general information sessions on WM topics
- WM annual photo contest display
- Book signing by prominent WM authors, such as Dr. Paul Auerbach
- AND a climbing wall!
