Update on COVID-19 and the Spring Semester 2022

September, 2021

Aerie Backcountry Medicine will not be traveling to Costa Rica for the first month of the 2022 program as in past years. The CDC has a level 4 travel restriction in place for Costa Rica and this places restrictions on our ability to travel under University of Montana policy. We will be running a full length semester program with the same dates, certifications and amazing group of instructors held entirely in Montana!

Enrolled students have the following options for spring 2022:

  • Keep their enrollment and join us on this amazing Semester in Wilderness Medicine in Montana.
  • Transfer their enrollment to Fall 2021 or Spring 2022 with the idea of incorporating an international component to their semester experience.
  • Withdraw from the program and pursue other Aerie courses or other opportunities.

Aerie will continue to work with our Medical Director and follow CDC guidelines to manage risk to our students and staff.
