Wilderness and Expedition Medical Skills are not learnt in lecture theatres.  They are acquired through real life experience and practice, outside, in the field, in the jungle or on the mountainside.  These expeditions are ideal for healthcare professionals looking for field experience in Wilderness & Expedition Medicine, or students on Medical Elective.  Fully immerse yourself in the environment of your choosing; learn the basics of good expedition skills whilst treating the many simulated casualties that pop up along the way... and of course have a lot of fun in the process.
