Important Announcement

Expedition & Wilderness Medicine started a world movement for medics working in remote and austere locations. We remain at the forefront in all we do and that's why we are changing our name to 'World Extreme Medicine'. It reflects a change in how we as a worldwide community of medics respond to emergencies and an ever widening range of opportunities for adventurous medics... Where man goes, medicine must follow.

About World Extreme Medicine

Expedition and Wilderness Medicine Training Courses for Expedition Medical Professionals

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’.

Courses take place both in the UK and abroad, with locations carefully chosen to enhance learning opportunities in the field and enrich the experience for all those taking part.
Our Faculty
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 faculty members range from commanders of Special Forces regiments to founders of major conservation charities. And we are grateful to them for sharing their inspiring stories, hard-won knowledge and proven-in-the-field techniques and skills with such generosity, passion and enthusiasm.
Guest Lecturers
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.
Our courses are suitable for doctors, students, wilderness EMTs, first responders and nurses, and for individuals providing medical cover in remote or inhospitable environments. While you don't need an advanced medical degree to take an Expedition or Wilderness Medicine Course, the training is pitched at participants with a strong medical background and a keen interest in wilderness and remote medicine.
