  Critical Care Transport Symposium

Due to the State of Maryland's budgetary limitations we are postponing offering this course indefinitely.  Please continue to check our website for the most current list of upcoming courses.

Our mission is to provide continuing education for Emergency Medical Technicians, paramedics, nurses, and physicians.  We are also the supplier of courses designed to educate providers in the treatment and management of critically ill and injured pediatric and adult patients.  These patients are transported by various modes, including ground, rotor and/or fixed wing.  Our adult and pediatric critical care courses are taught throughout the country and have been taken by over 6,000 students to date.

What is the Critical Care Transport Symposium?

The Critical Care Symposium is a 3 day learning and networking opportunity in which national faculty will
present new and emerging information and technology to health care providers of all backgrounds.  While specific
focus is on the aspects of treatment and management of critical care patients, you do not need to be a critical care
provider to attend.  This 3 day event focuses on adult patients during the Saturday and Sunday sessions and
pediatric/neonate patients on Monday.  Participants are encouraged to enroll in all 3 days of the class,
but are welcome to attend individual daily sessions.

 Agenda Topics for 2008 were:


The Symposium is open to anyone who wants to further their knowledge in Critical Care Transport
medicine and technology.


The Symposium participants will be addressed by Doctors, Nurses and Paramedics who are currently
practicing in the Critical Care Transport Field.  These individuals are all leaders in their agencies and have
been selected due to their contributions to the advancement of Critical Care Transport.

 Scheduled Faculty for the 2008 Symposium included:
