July 12-14, 2019

2019 marks our 17th Annual Conference dedicated to the specialty of Critical Care Transport. This experience is focused on providing a collection of topics for both experienced flight crews as well as those aspiring to join a critical care transport team in the future.

During this conference, we will be partnering with FlightBridgeED to offer our first advanced certification review course. This course is aimed at preparing individuals to sit for the Certified Flight Registered Nurse (CFRN) or the Flight Paramedic-Certified exams. This course will include 4 online “pre” modules prior to attending Flight Camp, as well as a live 2-day course with hands on skill stations. The third day of camp will encompass an advanced procedure lab, simulation scenarios completed in our dynamic helicopter and mobile ICU simulators, and a POCUS ultrasound lab. 

Nursing and EMS Continuing Education will be available. Join us for a great weekend!
