We are proud to offer a Wilderness First Responder (WFR) course during Wintersession in every year. WFR is the recognized national standard for outdoor professionals and those who spend significant time outside. We partner with the original school of wilderness medicine (SOLO) to offer this experiential course that includes plenty of hands-on practice. Time in the classroom learning concepts will be paired with simulations and scenarios outside. Many past students report significant value in taking the course during the winter, when long-term patient care can involve additional challenges. You can learn more about SOLO's WFR curriculum here.
The course is open to any Harvard affiliate. We offer the course at cost, and unfortunately we have no financial aid to offer.
