The last day was the moment to prove all the achieved skills. The comprehensive examination concerned the medical part of the Course’ participants and covered all the topics in mountain medicine.

A MCQ test was followed by an oral exam consisting of presentation of one case scenario and a by one practical task as well. With the idea to enjoy every last minute of the sunny weather in the mountains, the examination committee proposed to arrange the exam in the open air.

Finally, all the participants were rightfully awarded with the Diploma in Mountain Medicine (medical part) and with a certificate (mountaineers).

After this marvellous week full of enthusiasm, friendship and shared passion for mountaineering and rescue, it was quite hard for everybody to leave and return back home to Slovakia, Croatia, Finland, Ireland, Switzerland or Germany.
