The newly established BSMS Wilderness Medicine Society aims to cultivate existing and establish new interest in the exciting field of Wilderness Medicine.
Wilderness medicine - also known as expedition medicine - is the practice of medicine where definitive care is more than an hour away, often days to weeks. The practice of wilderness medicine is defined by difficult patient access, limited equipment, and environmental extremes.
We aim to provide stimulating talks and inspiring skills sessions throughout the academic year. In addition to practicing and teaching wilderness medicine, BSMS WMS members share a common sense of adventure - from mountain climbing to white-water rafting, from scuba-diving to exploring deserts and from adventure travel to volunteer and aid work. The society is filled with enthusiastic members keen to get involved in whatever you may be planning!
