Austere & Emergency Medicine International

We at Progression are thrilled to be hosting courses through Austere & Emergency Medicine International (AEMED).

Austere Medicine is the practice of medicine in resource-constrained environments – whether it be in the wilderness, developing countries, or after disasters. AEMED is an organization devoted to ensuring access to high-quality medical, paramedical, and first aid education to prepare individuals for these challenging environments.

All of our AEMED programs meet the latest Consensus on Science and Treatment Recommendations from the International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation (ILCOR) and the current Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Emergency Cardiovascular Care (ECC) guidelines. This ensures that our learners receive the most up-to-date, evidence-based education available.

At Progression, we are committed to providing the highest quality education to prepare individuals for any situation. We are delighted to work with AEMED and offer their exceptional courses to our learners.
