A DIMM graduate is trained to care for injuries and illness in alpine settings and to provide advice and direction to mitigate or preempt medical problems in mountain environments. A graduate of both the Winter and Summer CSMM modules receives a Diploma in Mountain Medicine from ICAR/UIAA and CME credits awarded by the Faculty of Medicine, University of British Columbia. 

The program starts with pre-course work assignments, we then have two days in class, followed by four training days in the mountains. Evaluation of candidates is continuous and periodic constructive/ success oriented feedback will be frequent.
