Equipment Lists

Toomas Tartes @toomastartes

Emergency medicine is all about preparedness. We want our students to be prepared before they come to class. Below are lists of equipment and supplies each student should have available. If you find that you have to spend a lot of money to meet these requirements contact us before you do! We may be able to loan you some equipment during class time.

All Courses

  • Textbook. If your course requires a textbook, one will be provided for you as part of the course cost.
  • Student Manual. Manuals will be provided on the first day of class and will contain important information. Bring these to every class.
  • Notebook. Be able to take notes and write reports.
  • Writing Tool. Pencils are tried and true, but nothing is stopping you from being bold with ink!
  • Learning Aids. If you require any learning aids, bring them. If you need other special accommodations for learning, contact us before class or during the first session.
  • Clinical Site Dress. If your course includes clinical time in an ambulance or in a hospital, you need professional clothes. This includes
    • Close-toed shoes or boots, preferably black
    • Pants which cover down to the ankle
    • Collared shirt, such as a polo, with conservative color and pattern
    • More information on student dress during clinicals is provided in the Learning Expectations.
  • Camera. For recording the memories!

Wilderness Courses

  • Backpack. You will be carrying equipment with you as we move around outdoors. A small- or medium-sized backpack will work. Use the pack you normally hike with if able.
  • Clothes. You will be transitioning between indoors and outdoors frequently and in all weather conditions. Dress for the weather expected and be able to adjust layers for comfort.
  • Boots. You will be working in all kinds of environments. Have boots that will keep your feet warm and dry. Insulated boots are a good idea in the winter.
