Feedback on Medical Training Classes

Hi everyone.

I promised myself I would write something before the end of the month . . . which is less than 3 hours away.  I have 20 minutes before I need to leave for a family get-together, so I’d better get a move on.

For the past several weeks I’ve spent all my spare time preparing for, then teaching, the Survival Medicine/Clinical Skills Training Classes (when I wasn’t planting my garden or mowing the grass or hosting my son’s graduation party, etc., etc.)

I thought you all might like to know what sort of people attended the past few classes.  The range of experience and expertise was amazing and I am so impressed with the sincere approach to learning everyone displayed.  The average age was probably 45 or so, with both teenagers and retirees attending, and all ages in between.  Education level ran the gamut from high school to PhD/MD level, including moms, dads, missionaries, crisis responders, nurses, EMTs, doctors, pharmacists, and interested folks from California to Massachusetts, and from Florida to America’s north coast.  According to their written evaluations, each one felt he or she had gained significant confidence and skill in treating lacerations, sprains, fractures, and acute and chronic illnesses – should there be no other choice.  (We also discussed the legal implications of doing so.)

The next live SURVIVAL MEDICINE training session will be September 11-13, 2012 (how timely).  Click HERE for details.

    I just happened to come upon this site and I find this survival medicine class to be an exciting opportunity to learn some great skills. I am very interested in taking this class but I would like some more information. Would it be possible to attend this class without renting a car since I would be coming from NYC (I know, I know, the worst place to be….). Possible to walk or take a taxi from nearest hotel to class site? Well, at any rate, I think your site has been a great education to me! Keep it up. Thanks.

    [Yes, you could fly into Akron-Canton and take a taxi to the Quality Inn on Gilchrist Road, which is a 1.5 to 2-mile walk to the current facility. Car rental from the airport is also a good choice. Hope to see you soon {Venue location may change in the future} – Doc Cindy]
