Wilderness Medicine is defined as being 2 or more hours from definitive care. Most front-country environments, even though they may be close to urbanized areas or roads, are more than 2 hours from definitive care due to the complexity of the terrain for the patient extraction. Topography plays a big role in patient extraction from a wooded environment.
Prerequisite minimums for all levels are 18 years of age or older and current CPR certification.
