Wilderness Medicine has four key values; to have fun, to be outside, to meet new people, and last but not least, to learn about how medicine can be applied in the Wilderness Environment. We run a range of events from guest lectures, to climbing, to walking, to our annual Wilderness Medicine Weekend away in the Lake District.

 About us

Wilderness Medicine continues to grow, and prides itself on being friendly and inclusive – it is open to all. For 2016 we have a new committee, new perspectives and new ideas. We’re looking for big name speakers for our talks, we’re looking at new challenge events such as ‘The Yorkshire Three Peaks Challenge’, and we’ve got new ideas to develop our socials. Of course, you can also count on the 2015 Weekend Away being the biggest and best to date! As ever, we look forward to spending some time with friends old and new.
