At the conclusion of the course, participants will be invited to apply lessons learned to the care of athletes competing in the Ironman® World Triathlon Championships as volunteers in the Ironman® Medical tent. They will be allowed to volunteer for 5 hours in the tent under the direct supervision of the Ironman® Conference Faculty. This 5-hour “mini-internship” allows the participant to see hands on application of the material learned in the course.
