Providing medical care in overseas and remote locations is far more than first aid in an unfamiliar environment. Medics need to be equipped with the knowledge and skills to effectively plan and provide comprehensive medical care while knowing when to seek further medical assistance. The Prometheus Team Medic Course provides this specialist training for the overseas and remote medic.
The Prometheus Team Medic Course builds on core medical skills and trains the medical provider to plan and provide medical care specific to overseas and remote hostile environments.
