RESOURCES

The curriculum may include instruction on rendering pre-hospital care for persons who have been injured or are suffering from illnesses or conditions that are likely in a conflict area. Instruction will be in English, but we will have some limited translation capacity for Arabic and French. (April 2015 Course)

 

The next course will be in the late summer or fall. The location is yet to be determined, but it will probably be somewhere in MENA.
