Crash and Learn

Salt Lake City, UT

Uinta-Wasatch-Cache National Forest

September 16-17, 2022


Crash and Learn is the premiere outdoor conference that offers a unique learning experience while maintaining proper safety precautions during a pandemic. This ‘Resuscitation Retreat’ is not only affordable, but focuses on educating the clinicians who are actually performing patient care.

Unlike other conferences, Crash and Learn does not have pre-cons, slide presentations, or business casual dress. Education sessions will take place in a wilderness environment utilizing whiteboard roundtables, high fidelity simulations, and hands-on workshops. Not only are these methods proven to better promote retention of information, but they will allow students to interact directly with world renowned instructors.

Forget stuffy conference rooms in a city with nothing to do! Come learn in the forest, under the stars, amongst motivated peers!

Registration: NOT OPEN


When is registration opening?

Probably at the beginning of 2022, but this is TBD.


Do I have to be an active flight crew member to attend?

Absolutely not! Our conference is all-inclusive and will include content that is applicable to prehospital and intrahospital disciplines.


What subjects will be taught?

Our goal is to cover the entire gamut of prehospital medicine. Education sessions will include emergency and critical care, austere medicine, technical search and rescue, aviation safety, and survival.


Will I get CE’s for attending?

Of course! The entire conference will be accredited by CAPCE and The California Board of Nursing via CME Collective. Rest assured that awarded CE’s are accepted by both the BCEN and IBSC.


How many attendees will be there?

Student groups will intentionally be kept small to facilitate a safe and individualized learning experience. In order to achieve this, we are capping the 2022 conference at 100 attendees. This will be on a first come, first serve basis, so sign up early!


How will I get to the campground?

We recommend utilizing the many available ride-share services and carpooling. (Cost from the airport is approximately $40.) Parking is limited and will mostly be reserved for overlanders, RV’s, and booth space.


Where will I stay?

BYOT (Bring Your Own Tent). Attendees will have their own site to set up a tent. We will offer RV and overlander parking for an additional charge. Campsites can accommodate multiple attendees, if you prefer to stay with friends. And the best part? 3-nights of lodging is included in the price of admission! (That’s right – No hotel costs.)


Will I get to pick my campsite?

General camp areas will be assigned on a first come, first serve basis, but attendees can choose where to set up in that assigned area. We also have an overflow site that will be assigned to those who show up the latest.


What will I eat?

Some meals will be included in your registration. More details regarding this will follow. Otherwise, it’s camping, so bring something you can eat and/or cook outside. Fire pits will be accessible for this reason, but we recommend bringing other means just in case.


What will I do after each day?

The fun and networking never stops. Enjoy outdoor recreation with your fellow attendees by sitting around a bonfire, hiking up a mountain, swimming in a creek, or playing cornhole. The sky is the limit!


How do I sign up to speak?

Initially, speakers will be hand-selected. Depending on the response, we will then open up public submissions for consideration.


How can I stay informed?

Listen to the podcast, read the blogs, and follow our social media pages. Also, look for the #CAL22 hashtag!
