Cruiser’s Medical Courses

Could you please recommend medical courses for blue water cruisers going to remote areas, that take place preferably on the west coast of the US and on weekends before 4/1/01? I’m aware of some excellent 2-week courses, but just can’t fit those into our schedule at this point. Thanks, Doanne

Hi Doanne: Sorry for the delay in answering. Been checking out this subject. A company called MedLink does exactly what you are asking about. They run three-day intensive training courses for airline, shipping and yacht personnel. They sometimes have courses in connection with boat shows. Costs run about $500 per person for the three day session, and the class is limited to eight students. The fellow to check with is:

Bill Mahaffy, PA-C
Maritime Product Manager MedLink

If you take the course, tell us what you think. Regards–Steve Dashew
