The Wilderness Medicine Interest Group is for anyone who is interested in the outdoors and would like to be prepared in the event of an emergency. We are an active group with several members pursuing the Fellowship in Wilderness Medicine. We hold monthly meetings, but also host weekly lunch session taught by our own medical students in an area of interest. This past year ten members attended a conference at Wake Forest and had a lot of fun learning new techniques in wilderness medicine. We have several members attending the World Conference in Whistler, BC in July. Furthermore, we get together to camp, hike and just have fun and practice our WM skills. Currently we are active in a community project to help clean up Buffalo Mountain; we also have great opportunities for small scale research projects and are planning to attend a variety of exciting conferences this fall.
