Adventure Medic began in a 2012 as a downloadable magazine for healthcare professionals interested in adventure, expedition and wilderness medicine. We are now proud to say that we have readers and contributors from all over the globe.
From taking a year out in Australia to overwintering in Antarctica: we wanted to encourage others to pursue interesting, charitable or unusual paths through medicine. We wanted to inspire you with tales of adventure, features and educational articles and lift your spirits with stunning photography and breathtaking video. Since we began, we have become even more dedicated to this ideal, particularly as medical training in the UK has become more and more rigid and uncompromising.
We are committed to being not-for-profit, so Adventure Medic will always be free for our users.

The ISTM Research Award program provides moderate grants (typical awards will be in the range of USD 5,000 to 10,000 although a single grant of USD 20,000 will be considered for exceptional proposals) each year through a peer-review process implemented by the ISTM Research and Grants Committee. These grants are designed to stimulate travel medicine research by supporting comprehensive research projects or, for larger projects, providing support for pilot studies to enable researchers to collect data/test hypotheses so that they can then apply to other agencies for more substantive research grants.
Model 9602-GSM is a pocket-size, low-cost Iridium/GSM tracker. It can be programmed to automatically switch between the Iridium and cellular networks based on a predefined set of conditions.
