Wilderness and Expedition Medicine Society

WEMS holds skills sessions, lecture nights and weekends away, and also run trips to national conferences throughout the year. Our interests are many and varied but include: pre-hospital care, military medicine, expedition medicine, critical and road traffic accident care. The wide range of training we give means we have something for everyone; being a mountaineer is definitely not a requirement! Our society is open to everyone with an interest, medics and non-medics alike.
