Advanced course for medicine on board

medicine on board

Depending on the area of travel, it can take hours to days for assistance to be available. That is why, in addition to general first-aid measures, the medicine-on-board courses primarily practice and teach how to deal with possible injuries on board, medical emergencies and illnesses. The focus of the course is on the special features of medical care at sea.

The aim of the course is for medical problems on board to be mastered until professional help is available.
