“Opal Creek is the best the West Coast has to offer in an immersive educational experience. The setting in the ancient forest is unparalleled for scenario-based education. I request this course for the joy of teaching there, knowing the great outcomes and interactions that will naturally flow.”
-Mark Cornwell, Senior WMI Instructor
Opal Creek and WMI have teamed up to bring you three of the most highly regarded wilderness medicine courses in the industry – all taught in the heart of the ancient forest. Seasoned WMI instructors often refer to Opal Creek as one of the premiere places to teach and practice wilderness medicine. Opal Creek’s location offers a real backcountry setting for WMI’s courses and gives participants a chance to learn new skills and brush-up on old ones in an envrionment similar to where these skills would be utilized in real-life wilderness medical emergencies.
