Introductory Course in Hyperbaric Medicine and Wound Care, Long Beach Memorial Medical Center

Hello,

I am writing to inform you that the Hyperbaric Medicine Department at Long Beach Memorial Medical Center is offering a week-long, 40-hour
Introductory Course in Hyperbaric Medicine and Wound Care.

The primary purpose of this program is to use both didactic and practical chamber-side teaching formats to introduce and educate physicians, with a background in a variety of specialties, in the theory, principles, and practices of hyperbaric medicine and wound care. Additionally, this CME program is designed to educate nursing, allied health professionals, and medical administrators who have educational interests or needs in hyperbaric medicine and wound care.

This course is expected to provide the participant with core knowledge about the theory and practices of hyperbaric medicine and wound care and to be a solid base for which further education and training in hyperbaric medicine and wound care can be built upon.

The faculty at LBMMC Department of Hyperbaric Medicine is uniquely qualified to provide this education. Members of our faculty include leaders in the field of hyperbaric medicine. We take advantage of our multi-specialty background (e.g., orthopedic surgery/wound care, emergency medicine, hematology/oncology, and pulmonary/critical care medicine) to provide a well-rounded perspective of the specialty.


The courses are scheduled from: May 8, 2006 – May 12, 2006
November 6, 2006 – November 10, 2006
