We teach skills that save lives.
Austere & Emergency Medicine International is an organization devoted to ensuring access to high quality, medical, paramedical and first aid education.
All of our programmes meet the latest Consensus on Science and Treatment Recommendations from the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) and the current Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC) guidelines.
Our courses are delivered globally by authorised education centers and training providers, and attended by learners from an ever growing range of cultures, backgrounds and industries.
If you’re looking to teach, we’re looking for you!
All of our instructors have demonstrable experience in one or more of our faculty areas, and real patient care experience – be it in clinical or less traditional environments. We are running two instructor training programs this year, one in Texas, US and the other in Sarawak, Malaysia.
Dates: 7-9 June
Location: Sarawak, Malaysia
Dates: 13-15 September
Location: Texas, USA
Whilst we value our curriculum as being on par with global leaders, there is one area in which we feel we excel.
Our curriculum and equally importantly our prices are not centred around one geography or culture.
We are commited to delivering world-class, culturally relevant, economically accessible programs, no matter where you are.
The Austere Medicine faculty prepares medical professionals, allied healthcare providers, remote professionals, outdoor adventure professionals and other interested parties to handle medical emergencies in situations where definitive care may be severely delayed or even inaccessible, and where resource deficts may negativelty impact patient outcomes. Participants learn to adapt to challenging environments and improvise to provide the best possible care to the patient in the situation and place that they find themselves.
The Emergency Medicine faculty provides comprehensive Advanced Life Support training for medical professionals and allied healthcare providers working in both hospital and pre-hospital environments. The various curricula covers the rapid assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of a wide range of acute cardiovascular, traumatic, medical, and environmental conditions. Emphasis is placed on quick decision-making, effective teamwork, and following established protocols in high-pressure situations.
The Prehospital Care faculty focuses on training healthcare providers and first responders to deliver critical medical care in the crucial moments before a patient reaches a hospital. This includes assessment, stabilization, and initial treatment, emphasizing the importance of rapid and effective interventions during transit to enhance patient outcomes.
Urban First Aid
Urban first aid courses equip individuals with essential life-saving skills along with the knowledge and skills requried to assist a patient presenting with less critical illnesses and injuries. Participants learn to respond effectively, with the aims of preserving life, preventing deterioration, and promoting recovery. The curricula focuses on acute interventions pending the arrival of professional medical help.
The Disaster Management faculty specializes in training providers to respond effectively to large-scale emergencies and disasters. This includes natural disasters, pandemics, and mass casualty incidents. Participants learn to coordinate medical responses, manage resources efficiently, and provide care in challenging situations.
The faculty of Social Science prepares those with no prior foundation in psychology to understand how to identify and respond to incidents involving significant emotional distress, severe trama, acute presentation of a previously diagnosed mental health disorder, or a new onset mental health crisis safely, and effectively. Understanding human behavior, communication strategies, and interpersonal dynamics is emphasized to enhance the overall effectiveness of response. All programs aim to destigmatise mental health concerns, and normalize help-seeking behaviour.
