WEMSI is a unique organisation delivering courses in pre-hospital emergency care. The volunteer faculty is made up of actively practising, highly experienced doctors, paramedics, ambulance technicians, climbers, paddlers, cavers, skiers, explorers and adventurers! Each year they come together from all over the world and volunteer their time to provide a high staff-to-student ratio course that aims to equip students with the knowledge and practical skills that will help prepare them for patient care in a remote environment.

Each course has a very high level of practical content using realistic scenarios, patients and make-up that build in complexity as the course progresses; all theory sessions are delivered by specialists in their field, making WEMSI courses both challenging and unique. All our courses have an element of on-going assessment.

The Wilderness Physician course is for qualified doctors who will not only be operating in remote environments but who could also find themselves in the position of remotely assisting medics. The course runs in parallel with the WEMT course but has separate sessions where appropriate. This course provides a strong mix of practical medical scenarios and co-ordination experience, enabling doctors to feel comfortable taking on a lead medical role on an expedition or within a rescue team.

More detailed information will be available on WEMSI International’s booking website. Please direct any enquiries to wales@wemsi-international.org

Due to its intense nature, this course is Residential only. The cost per person is £875.
