Collecting personal and medical information from expedition participants in good time is so important that we’ve produce a new questionnaire that is comprehensive and reasonably jargon-free. Use it freely and spread the word. Download it at this new webpage.
Take a peek and tell us what you think! Our aim was to brighten up the website, reduce clutter and refresh the banner pictures. The drop down menu navigation is much improved too. Thanks to friends and alumni who contributed to the stunning bank of images. If you spot any glitches please let us know. Thanks in advance.
Season’s greetings WMT friends and alumni! This year we’ve taken a slightly light-hearted approach to our final Newsletter of the year and offered 10 top tips on how to make the most of 2017 including motivational reading, practical advice on how to save money abroad, reasons why you should treat yourself to new gear fit for purpose and training/coaching/guiding to help you achieve your ambitions and more. Life really is too short not to make the most of it – check out “f**k it DO WHAT YOU LOVE by John Parkin who knows a thing or two about this important subject. Read the full newsletter. Have a great holiday and an awesome 2017.
Best wishes from Team WMT.
Given WMT’s long established partnership with “The Lodge” who host our Advanced Medicine courses, we’re very happy to share news of Glenmore Lodge’s NEW 2-day Women’s Winter Skills and Women’s Introduction to Winter Mountaineering courses being held in Aviemore 11-12 March. Naturally, these courses for women are taught by females instructors. Why women only courses? See the British Mountaineering Council’s page This Girl Can: climb www.thebmc.co.uk and Sport England who are driving female participation in sport. www.sportengland.org
We’re delighted that as usual the flagship Expedition Medicine winter course in the heart of the Alps has sold out.
WMT’s collection of expert Medical Director’s Bulletins written by Dr Harvey Pynn are now online. Topics range from rabies, travelling with children to new cervical spine injury management guidelines and managing hypothermia.
We’re very excited about our website face lift which should go live mid-January 2017 giving the website a cleaner, brighter look and much more mobile device functionality. Watch this space. We’re also inviting image contributions for the homepage banner – stunning wide images showing the breadth of activities and environments WMT alumni travel to would be much appreciated. Please get in touch by email.
