Medical Director Core Curriculum

The Medical Director Core Curriculum is offered as a preconference to the annual Air Medical Transport Conference (AMTC). The AMPA Board of Trustees determined at the April 2003 Board meeting that offering a core curriculum process is relevant to the success of physicians managing critical care air and ground medical transport teams. The Core Curriculum is offered in three parts, which do not need to be taken consecutively, and covers topics in Principles and Direction of Air Medical Transport, a publication of AMPA. The sessions will be of interest to physicians just starting as medical directors, as well as those who are experienced. The preconference also offers an opportunity for physicians to network and presents a forum for interactive discussion.

The AMPA Medical Director Core Curriculum recognized and recommended by CAMTS as background training for a Medical Director of a critical care transport program that is applying for accreditation or undergoing reaccreditation.
