About World Extreme Medicine
World Extreme Medicine (formerly Expedition & Wilderness Medicine) is the world's leading provider of expedition, wilderness and remote medicine training courses for medical professionals.
Designed to provide medics with the expert knowledge and practical skills they need to become valuable members of an expedition or a remote medical team, our courses achieve 100% approval ratings from participants, with 82% deeming them ‘Excellent’.
Academic qualifications are all well and good, but in order to inspire others and prepare them for life as an expedition medic, nothing beats expedition experience. We are therefore proud to have drawn together a medical and teaching faculty whose expedition experience is unsurpassed, ranging from Antarctica to Namibia, China to Chile.
Our speakers are an eclectic and interesting bunch, and have included Sir Chris Bonington and Sarah Outen (the youngest person and only British woman to have rowed the Indian Ocean). Others are climber Stephen Venables, mountaineers Andy Cave, Simon Yates and Jamie Andrews, and expedition medics Sundeep Dhillon, Mike Stroud, Mike Grocott, Jim Milledge, Chis Imray and Luanne Freer.
