UNM Mountain Medicine
Did you know that UNM has one of only two specialized mountain medicine programs in the country? 

We learned all about the program this week  from Trevor Mayschak a paramedic, senior lecturer with University of New Mexico mountain medicine program. He has a bachelors in emergency medicine and a masters degree in exercise science. he loves spending time with his wife in the mountains of New Mexico and enjoys teaching perspective mountain medicine rescuers from all over the world. He shared an amazing PowerPoint and many of our members and guests had never heard of this program.
