The ELC campus is surrounded by mountains and forests with an extensive trail network, offering endless possibilities for simulated wilderness medicine scenarios and recreation alike.
Lodging is included for all Remote Medical International courses at the ELC. Each student will share a lodge room with one or two other students. Each lodge has shared gender-specific bathrooms with two private shower stalls and two toilet stalls. The student lodges also have a lounge room with a small fridge and sink. There are three lodges on the ELC campus.
Scratch made, locally-sourced and organic meals are provided as a part of all Remote Medical International courses at the ELC. Meals are prepared daily in the commercial kitchen by ELC chefs beginning the day the course starts through the last day, including weekends.

Students are responsible for their own transportation. The ELC is a three-hour drive from Seattle, WA, and best reached with a personal vehicle.
