Taos Courses

Thank you very much for registering to take a course with us.  We look forward to sharing a Wilderness Medicine learning experience with you!

Time

The classes will run from 8am to 5pm every day.  We will take a lunch break, usually from Noon to 1pm.

Location

We will be at Taos Tennis at Quail Ridge Taos, which is a little under a mile North on 150 (the road up to the ski valley) from the 64 and 150 junctions Quite obvious on the left side of the road.   The classroom entrance is at the back of the building.  From the parking lot, go down the sidewalk between the building & the tennis courts.  At the end of the building turn right & walk between the swimming pool & the building.  Stay left along the swimming pool fence.  Our classroom entrance is the FAR LEFT DOOR facing south, set back from the rest of the building.

Clothing

  • Clothing appropriate to the weather.  We will be outdoors as much as possible within the curriculum and will train snow or sunshine.  We recommend a wind/waterproof jacket of some kind.  The classroom can be a little chilly in the morning so you may want to bring fleece/wool/warmies/etc.
  • Sturdy walking shoes/boots.  There will likely still be snow, and the scenarios and simulations may be outside.  You may be required to transport patients through a variety of terrain.
  • Clothing that can get dirty.  You will be outside and we conduct hi-fidelity simulations complete with blood (and other unsavories).  Expect to get a little dirty… 🙂

Food

We are close to town, and there are some close food options (including a supermarket). We will have hot water, coffee, and teas available.

Optional (but useful)

  • Sunscreen
  • Sunglasses
  • Extra socks
