WMT has led the expedition community for over 25 years in delivering expert expedition medical training courses for laypeople and medics.
To begin exploring the site, first decide which stream of WMT courses is most appropriate to you, MEDIC or EXPLORER.
Medic courses are practical and inspiring and equip aspiring or seasoned expedition doctors and nurses with the knowledge, skills and insights needed to provide expedition medical support. In the UK we offer Mountain Medicine and Expedition Medic (both 2 days) and the unrivalled 7-day Expedition Skills course that uniquely combines bush craft, bush mechanic skills, personal security training and advanced navigation/GPS training with the Expedition Medic course. Chamonix is the base for WMT’s legendary Expedition Medicine winter course, Expedition Medicine & Field Skills summer course and Mountain Medicine on Skis. In Africa there’s the immersive, week-long Morocco Mountain Medicine Expedition. All Medic courses attract CPD points. See All Medic Course Dates.

Far From Help Part 2/Advanced Refresher over 2-days allows alumni to top up or refresh their training.
