Garreth has been involved with the elective since 2006 when he helped it transition from FM to EM as a student. As faculty at MMC he helped it transition to a new institution and now has helped it transition from Utah to Maine.
He is also FAWM, FACEP and serves locally as Medical Advisor Maine Region National Ski Patrol and Saddleback Ski Patrol
Sara is also one of our course directors. She began her career teaching wilderness medicine with NOLS. She brings a true expertise as a medical educator.
Matt is our third course director and the Maine EMS medical director, also medical director for Portland FD, and the medical director for Baxter State Park. He helped found a search and rescue team and was likely the most instrumental piece in bringing this elective from the FM department to the EM department. He brings true expertise and infectious enthusiasm for volunteerism.
Tom has been helping teach this elective intermittently for more than 10 years. He brings a vast experience in mountain and swift water travel.
A variety of other faculty with expertise in wilderness travel and medicine will vary from year to year.
