We believe the wild keeps us alive. We stand for kindness, service, inclusivity, education, and nature. We elevate others as we climb. We see the need and fill the gap. We look to uproot barriers (not trees). We seek knowledge and pay it forward. We find our way in the wild. We are the Wilderness Medical Society, a community of medical professionals devoted to facilitating high-quality care in the outdoors. Our global membership and world-renowned experts affirm our collective authority to set clinical standards and disseminate the most comprehensive array of wilderness medicine knowledge. Our innovative programs, publications, research and certifications equip you with the tools to practice in any environment on (or off) the planet. Healthy lives are nurtured in wild places. Join us on the adventure and truly come alive.
