Vocational Training Team project to train partners in maternal health and disaster medicine
The VTT provided intensive, practical austere medicine skills-training for local health care providers in the remote
highlands of Chiapas, one of the poorest and most disaster-vulnerable regions in Mexico. Austere medicine is the practice
of medicine in challenging, resource-constrained environments with minimal or no infrastructure, such as in remote or
wilderness areas, in rural areas of developing countries, in war, or in the wake of widespread disaster or mass casualty
events. The goal of the austere medicine training team is to 'train the trainers,' thus to improve the scope and efficacy of
care provided to the indigenous population of the region in an ongoing manner Specialties to be addressed include rural obstetrics, austere emergency room skills,
mass casualty and disaster medicine.
