MISSIONCRAFT 2019 is designed to equip clinical practitioners with advanced practical skills and knowledge to provide quality effective leadership and acute care in resource-constrained environments. This four-day intensive course combines principles of the Missioncraft in Disaster Relief® course with in-depth clinical and leadership training. The workshop is offered to medical professionals who plan to deploy and provide hands-on, acute care to many patients with limited resources.

The course is designed for experienced clinicians to gain knowledge and competencies that enable them to lead teams of medical professionals into low-resource emergency contexts.  Additionally, classroom-based training will be enhanced by field-based training; MGH-Global Disaster Response, in conjunction with The Harvard Humanitarian Initiative (HHI), will host a two-day outdoor training where participants will set up and operate a field hospital station, as part of an overall disaster simulation. Additionally, this opportunity will be used as a deployment simulation with skills training sessions in the Harold Parker State Forest in Andover, Massachusetts.
