Take your training into the field and open up a whole new world of travel and opportunity.  

This is medicine at the sharp end.  Our internationally-renowned five day Expedition and Wilderness Medicine course gives you all the skills and expertise you need to become a competent member of an expedition medical team. 

Expedition and Wilderness Medicine – Slovenia

Re-energise your career and set your sights on new horizons. These five days of inspiring training open up the world of expedition medicine to all medical professionals.

Over the years, we’ve watched our alumni take part in expeditions across the globe, respond to emergencies or natural disasters and gain placements with organisations such us UK-Med and Médecins Sans Frontières.

All this is out there for the taking – this is your route to adventure.


Our Expedition & Wilderness Medicine course set on the shores of the stunning Lake Bohinj offers the same great content as our UK-based courses with additional workshops, a night out bivvying and more time outdoors.

You’ll spend over half your time focusing on practical group work and there’ll be a chance to explore the mountain behind the hostel. Our team of experienced expedition medics will deliver various lectures covering the essential content you need to know out on expedition anywhere across the globe. At the end of the Expedition and Wilderness Medicine course we’ll spend a night out building our camps and bivvying under the stars, your final challenge will be a search and rescue exercise designed to test your skills in combination.

Accreditation will be offered through the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. We estimate 30 hours of CPD will be awarded for the complete course.

This course now includes the WEM care package which contains branded stickers, lanyard and 10l dry bag.
