OUR MISSION STATEMENT
Promoting excellence through high quality education for medical rescuers tasked
with patient care in the austere mountain environment.
Welcome to the International Mountain Medicine Symposium in Silverton, Colorado. The Symposium was created to provide more vigorous education, medical knowledge, and rescue techniques in austere mountain environments. Silverton Medical Rescue (a dual-mission EMS and Search and Rescue Service), Silverton Avalanche School, The Mountain Medicine Institute, LLC and University of New Mexico, School of Emergency Medicine, Diploma in Mountain Medicine Program have teamed up to provide state of the art medical education, the latest in mountain medicine, alpine rescue and high end avalanche awareness and education in one seminar.
It is our goal to combine avalanche rescue, mountain rescue, and mountain medicine to provide an unique approach to responding, treating, and evacuating patients in austere mountain environments. We will combine rescue techniques with mountain medical topics through didactic and field instruction while presenting cutting edge information by top experts in the field.
