Elective Rotation: Burning Man Emergency Medical Volunteer
Contact: Jared Garrison-Jakel
Location: Black Rock City, NV
Once a year 60,000 people gather for a week on a dry lake bed in the Nevada desert for one of the largest festivals/art shows in the world — Burning Man! — and they need a crew of medical volunteers to staff two triage tents. In addition to a great deal on a guaranteed ticket, you’ll get to work 3-4 eight hour shifts with a multi-disciplinary team of medical volunteers assessing all manner of illness and injury.
