About the WMS

The Wilderness Medical Society is the world's largest non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the specialty of wilderness medicine. We have approximately 4,100 members from nearly 50 countries, and our mission is to inspire you to be alive in the wilderness. All healthcare professionals, including physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, EMTs, paramedics, and members of ski patrol and search and rescue, are invited to become members. Our goal is to better equip you to provide "medical care in areas where fixed or transient geographic challenges reduce the availability of, or alter requirements for, medical or patient movement resources." (Auerbach's Wilderness Medicine 7e (2017))
