A three-day course can increase knowledge and interest in disaster medicine for medical students
The incidence of disasters increases and the need for physicians with an interest in disaster medicine is essential. As an early introduction of disaster medicine, medical students from Denmark, members of the Students’ Society for Anesthesiology and Traumatology, participated on a three-day course, Trauma Days 2013, with full-scale simulations. The students underwent debriefings and questionnaires were handed out. 94% of the students increased their interest in disaster medicine.
