Mass Casualty Incident Training Course (MCIT)

Course Description:

Violent mass casualty incidents (MCI) have critically affected our nation’s communities and hospitals in both rural and urban environments. Due to the indiscriminate nature and location of MCIs, they can directly impact all ED personnel regardless of whether they work in a small community hospital or Level 1 trauma center. Special skills and team-based training are necessary to optimally respond to an MCI. The primary goal of this Mass Casualty Incident Training (MCI) course is to simulate multiple high-volume, high-acuity scenarios and identify the resources, personnel, equipment, processes, and procedures that are necessary. This two-day live course will be in Tampa, Florida, October 23 and 24, 2024. Expect action-packed, scenario-based training augmented with pre-course content, round table discussions, and after-incident debriefing.

To optimize participants’ hands-on simulation experience at CAMLS, we offer exclusive access to three online modules crafted by foremost experts in international healthcare disaster training. These on-demand modules offer firsthand narratives and lessons learned from prior MCIs, alongside comprehensive guidance on readiness, response, and recovery strategies for managing such events effectively. CE will be provided for the online modules and onsite course.
