Medical training

What medical training is recommended for long distance cruisers ?

Certification is not necessary, I am just interested in a good education so that I can avoid dying, losing a leg, and other unpleasant experiences. The more I could study at home the better, but I realize that some formal training might be a good idea. But what training ? And what should I read to prepare in advance of the training ? I am good at learning things on my own so I do not want to tie up time and resources participating in training if it is unnecessary, that is to say if I could have just learned the same thing on my own through reading and practice here at home. Some kind of an on-line course might be good.

Look forward to your thoughts.
