Update on COVID-19 and the Summer Semester 2021

October 25, 2020

Aerie Backcountry Medicine is closely monitoring developments of COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) and have the following updates regarding the Summer Semester in Wilderness Medicine.

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. For the Summer Semester program Aerie now allows for a refunded deposit whether or not the program runs as we understand that this is a dynamic situation.

Students have the following options if they choose not to participate in the 2021 Summer Semester:

  • Transfer registration to another 2021 or 2022 Semester in Wilderness Medicine Program.
  • Students can enroll in a shortened program during which they could earn a W-EMT and Red Card for a discounted price.
  • Students can be refunded their deposit.

Please check back here for updates on the Summer Semester program and considerations pertaining to COVID-19.
