Course Code: FRTEP
Open for Enrollment
Welcome to the First Responder Trauma and Emergency Care Program! Trauma is one of the world’s leading causes of preventable death, particularly in developing countries. Our goal with this course is to help YOU join a new generation of medical first responders who can help improve emergency conditions of patients BEFORE they get to the hospital, which could save millions of lives per year.
The scope of this online course is to give you the knowledge needed to make a difference in an emergency trauma situation—all at your own learning pace. This knowledge is intended to be supplemented by a 2-day hands-on workshop, which we are gradually making available across the world. Thanks, and we hope you enjoy this learning experience!
