We're back after a long break for our semester programs. Sorry for the wait, but we're glad to be back.
In this episode, I'm joined by Nick Daniel of Dartmouth-Hitchcock in New Hampshire. Nick has taught AWLS courses regionally and internationally and has taught wilderness medicine in such locations as the Adirondacks, White Mountains, Mexico, Africa, Guatemala, Russia, and Panama. He spent a month in the Indian Himalayas teaching medical students while providing medical care, as well as time in Haiti. He has completed his FAWM and earned a diploma in mountain medicine. Nick’s research interests in wilderness medicine include hypothermia, frostbite, altitude medicine, mountaineering psychology, and hiker preparedness. Recently, he and his coworkers from Dartmouth's wilderness and emergency medicine program came out to our campus for an introduction to wilderness living/survival skills.
Our conversation ranges from talking about Nicks's background and experience in the outdoors, the program for wilderness medicine fellowships at Dartmouth, as well as some insight into the psychology behind who finishes trips and who doesn't, and why that is.
I had a great time talking with Nick, and working with him on the course here at our campus in southern VT. I'm pretty sure you'll get a kick out of our conversation as well.
