Dr. K and his boonDOCS crew have partnered with Outdoor Channel to bring you the “art and science” of managing medical emergencies in a backcountry setting!
Anyone interested in pursuing specific outdoor activities (hunting, fishing, sailing, skiing, etc.) from the perspective of the ever-growing fields of wilderness, travel, and disaster medicine will benefit from the innovative show’s focused instruction. Combining humor with real life know-how and accessible explanations, boonDOCS brings to life difficult medical concepts that viewers can incorporate into their own experiences in the field. Learned skill sets, in total, help form a complete curriculum in wilderness medicine. Staying true to the show’s motto, “When you’re out there, be there!” viewers are encouraged to gain expertise in wilderness medicine so that they can help fellow outdoor enthusiasts in times of medical need and duress.
The show is hosted by Andrew C. Krakowski, MD, the founder and former director of the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine’s course in wilderness medicine. He and his chief field operative, Dennis “DJ” Phalen, a certified EMT and wilderness first responder, anchor the show and keep viewers coming back for more.
Whether your vision of the outdoors is the outback or the backyard, the boonDOCS Wilderness & Travel Medicine show will better prepare you for medical emergencies that can occur in environments where resources run thin and accidents are sure to happen. In other words, “when NATURE is your nearest hospital!”
