Aspiro's Approach to Medical Care
Comprehensive medical care by certified professionals is a priority at Aspiro. Our medical team consists of an MD with extensive emergency experience, a psychiatrist, a nurse practitioner, and two EMT’s. In order for students to begin their journey of healing and well-being, the team focuses on a combination of physical, mental, and emotional health. This holistic approach is important to the members of our multidisciplinary medical team who all play a big role in the overall care and safety of our students.
Our medical team ensures that each member has the most current information on our students through regular communication with our therapists and our field team. This communication provides an awareness of evolving treatment goals, familiarity of the challenges faced, information on psychological concerns, and especially knowledge of the physical condition and needs of each student. This extensive approach allows the team to provide individualized and comprehensive care. This thorough approach to medical care also includes an in-depth, weekly medical assessment that is held face-to-face. As the medical team works closely with the risk management and field leadership team, they are able to create policies and procedures to ensure safety and quality care.
Our medical team is available 24/7 and has direct contact with the field guides at least twice a day. In addition, the Aspiro medical staff members have combined training and experience in both wilderness and remote medical care, as well as hospital and emergency settings. This team has the knowledge and experience to provide the best possible care, thus allowing students and families to focus on the healing process.
