Wilderness Medicine Interest Group

Wilderness Medicine Interest Group (WMIG) is a group of students that are passionate about exploring the outdoors and want to understand how to manage medical problems in a wilderness setting. Fundamentals of wilderness medicine include understanding and minimizing risk in outdoor excursions, stabilizing patients before definitive medical care is available, and evacuation techniques. WMIG goes on weekend trips and holds events throughout the year to explore and practice various Wilderness Medicine topics. In the Spring, there is an opportunity for students to do a weekend of more intense training to receive their Advanced Wilderness Life Support (AWLS) certification.
