The goal of Wilderness Medicine is to be an academic resource for healthcare providers at all levels who spend time in and have a passion for the great outdoors. We aim to educate students, healthcare providers and the public to help victims and patients who are in a Wilderness or Austere environment. With growing numbers of people participating in outdoor activities, especially in remote places, there is a growing need for a special skill set that allows providers to initiate and implement care with limited resource.
We offer educational opportunities in the following manner:
- Medical student elective
- Advanced Wilderness Life Support (AWLS) certification
