Course Description

The Uniformed Services Chapter Division (USAAEM) is offering a course detailing the process of disaster preparation, response, and management. We will rely on both the experience and wisdom of military medicine experts as well as numerous hands-on sessions to attempt to lessen the impact of a major disaster and assist in shortening the recovery period. Throughout the course the goal will be to allow the emergency medicine community to not only react to a devastating event, but also to minimize the impact by developing a strong foundation of knowledge and preparedness. 


Course Fee

  • $25 Students and Residents
     
  • $50 Physicians and Allied Health Professionals

The registration fee is refunded within 30 days after the conference for USAAEM members who attend the course.
