The fourth edition of the Mountain Medicine course has finished. We descended from JamtalhÃ¼tte last Saturday. 24 participants have been working on their alpine and medical skills during the week. The participants summited 3 peaks: the Pfannknecht (2208 m), Hintere Jamspitze (3156 m) and the Haagspitze (3029 m) under guidance of our guides Gabi, Vitus, Joris and Ruben. In addition, they practiced their ropework on and around the glacier. The evenings were filled with medical lectures on patient assessment, trauma, high altitude physiology and pathophysiology, etc. The participants were able to put their acquired knowledge into practice during the skills stations.
We look back on a successful week.
