    Received this email today and thought I would pass it along to any fourth year students interested in a disaster medicine elective. Looks pretty good to me......


    The University of New Mexico is offering a 4 week rotation in October called Disaster Medicine and Emergency Medicine under Austere Conditions. We offer experiences and training related to DMAT teams, US&R and Confined Space Medicine, Public Heath Emergencies, Wilderness Medicine, International Medicine and Emergency Medicine at UNM (which some might consider Emergency Medicine under austere conditions ;-) )

    We offer certification in ACLS, ADLS, and FEMA IST courses as well as drills with NM TF-1's canine search team, the Albuquerque SWAT team, the Sandia Wilderness Search and Rescue Team, ride alongs with EMS, flights with our fixed wing critical care transport teams, and Pandemic Influenza table top exercises.

    If you or any students have questions, you are welcome to email me at [email protected]

    Very cool. Like MacGuyver, Boy Scouts, and medicine rolled into one.

    Score! I think I'll use that for my last allowed away month. My fourth year is going to be awesome.

  7. Yeah...this is basically what I want to do with my entire career (do you think I can get a 30 year "rotation" there)
