The Diploma in Mountain Medicine (DiMM) is an exciting program designed to train the participant in the essentials of caring for patients in the technical mountain environment. The DiMM has set the standard for nearly 20 years in Europe and other parts of the world for the education of healthcare professionals in mountain medicine and rescue.
The WMS partnered with the University of Utah and University of Colorado to introduce this exciting program in the USA. The DiMM is an internationally recognized course certifying that the participant has undergone rigorous training and testing. The medical commissions of the International Mountaineering and Climbing Federation (UIAA) and International Commission for Alpine Rescue (ICAR), together with the International Society for Mountain Medicine (ISMM), established minimal requirements for these courses in 1997.
