2018 Everest ER team

posted in: Latest News Dispatch | 13

Our 2018 Everest ER team are gathered in Kathmandu, preparing gear, medicines and duffles of equipment for our 16th season on the mountain.  We will be trekking up to EBC with the Wilderness Medical Society medical education trek, teaching a few classes along the way and getting a little help up top setting up our clinic from the trekkers.

We are excited for the first year to have 2 residency trained Nepali doctors joining our team, which will no doubt improve our communication with our Nepali patients, but also streamline collaboration with healthcare down in Kathmandu.  Follow this link to meet the team! http://www.everester.org/about-us/spring-2017-staff/

    My son is a pre-med student and has strong interest in an internship with the ER team at the base camp of Everest. We wants to gain some experience treat frostbite, respiratory illness due to high elevation. He would like to do it during the Spring of 2019. Any suggestions??

    Do you have any opportunities for emergency medicine residents (PGY3)?

    How could a nurse work at base camp?

    Are there any opportunities for an ACMG guide, NR-EMT, W-EMT, and WFR Instructor to be an assistant at Everest ER? Please email me. Best of luck to you this year!

  5. Is there an opportunity to undergo a four week medical elective with your team?

  6. Hi,
    I understand my question is slightly vague, but I am in the early stages of
    Planning.
    As a HCPC UK paramedic, I’m looking for self funded CPD.
    Would there be any scope for a one/two week observational
    Placement with you in 2020

    Kind regards

    Hi, I’m only 15 and I realize I have a lot of time to think about my future career but I have a strong interest in working with the Everest ER at base camp when I’m older and I have a couple questions. Like for instance, how much training and mountaineering did you have to undergo to become an Everest ER doctor? I’m also wondering about the education and the schooling that it takes. Thanks so much for your time!
