An exciting and comprehensive 5-day course designed to open the world of expedition medicine to doctors, nurses, paramedics and other medical professionals wanting to add adventure into their career. This course includes additional lecture content and an extended expanded programme of outdoor activities. Aimed at medical professionals based in Europe the course will be taught in English by a highly experienced faculty.
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 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.

Do you need travel and health insurance?
The UK Foreign Office advises,” The EHIC won’t cover medical repatriation, ongoing medical treatment or non-urgent treatment, so you should make sure you have adequate travel insurance and accessible funds to cover the cost of any medical treatment and repatriation.”
We never advise travel without adequate insurance, there are a wide variety of options at a very affordable rate.…it really is worth it!
