Adventure Ed

We believe the wild keeps us alive which is why our continuing medical education extends beyond the classroom. Our Adventure Ed (formerly known as Adventure CME) trips provide an immersive experience in the wilderness environment that you're learning about.

Essential Eligibility Criteria (EEC)
For participants on Wilderness Medical Society (WMS) Electives, Adventure Ed, Diploma in Mountain Medicine, Diploma in Diving and Marine Medicine programs, and conferences.

Wilderness Medical Society programs and experiences occur in both traditional classrooms and in remote, dynamic wilderness environments over days to weeks. Living and learning in these environments is challenging and is physically, cognitively, and emotionally demanding. Participants will be exposed to potentially unfamiliar environments and must be fully engaged in self-care and responsibility while committing to the needs and goals of both the group and the program. The Wilderness Medical Society strives to foster an inclusive environment where each program member has an opportunity to contribute and feel respected.

The following outlines the minimum requirements for participation. A qualified person is one who meets the EEC for participation in the program activity. If you have specific questions, please contact the program organizer to explore these criteria in more detail.

Accommodations Needed
The WMS is committed to treating all persons with dignity, respect, and fairness. We support and comply with the ADA. In this regard, the WMS will make every reasonable effort to reduce anticipated barriers for attendance and provide an optimal experience for every attendee. We have established speaker guidelines encouraging more inclusive presentations and have closed captioning available for virtual presentations. If there is additional support that you might need, please reach out by phone (512) 215-4305 or email [email protected].
