Update on COVID-19 and the Spring Semester 2021
April 28, 2020
Aerie Backcountry Medicine is closely monitoring developments of COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) and have the following updates regarding the Spring Semester in Wilderness Medicine.
Aerie has a reserve schedule and plan to run the Spring Semester entirely domestically, in Western Montana, if travel to Costa Rica is deemed unsafe for students and staff in the spring of 2021. While we realize that this would significantly change the experience of the program, we believe it may be the safest way to run the entire program. Students will still be able to earn all the professional certifications and all 15 University of Montana credits advertised for the Spring Semester program.
Aerie will be tracking travel guidelines from the CDC and working with our Medical Director, Dr. Greg Moore, to manage risk to our students and staff.
