Disaster Medicine Training
Every healthcare provider responding to a disaster should have foundational knowledge of disaster medicine. This self-paced course will help you explore the foundation for SEMPER disaster knowledge using videos lectures and case scenarios, which will be supplemented by in-person lectures as well as field exercises. This course was developed through SEMPER, Stanford Emergency Medicine Program for Emergency Response.
SEMPER’s mission has 3 pillars:
- Develop nimble medical teams that could “load and go” into a disaster scene within 24 hours of a call and to be self-sufficient for the first 72 hours.
- Develop a standardized disaster medicine education curriculum and training for all members.
- Pursue research to develop disaster best practices in order to improve disaster medical care.
While all SEMPER members are required to complete this course, non-SEMPER members interested in learning more about disaster medicine or any person wishing to deploy to a disaster are also welcome to complete this course. There will be a pre-test as well as a post-test upon completion of all the modules
You will learn:
• Foundation for SEMPER
• Develop best practices for disaster relief
• Pursue research in disaster medicine
