For Accomplished Individuals Who Desire:

· Validation for the public, patients, and clients of training in wilderness medicine
· Recognition for completing high-quality standards in wilderness medicine
The Wilderness Medical Society (WMS) recognizes that the public, whether casual participant, expert outdoor enthusiast, or international traveler, has high
expectations of their health care providers in delivering advice, treatment, and safety precautions for wilderness and adventure travel. Additionally, greater
responsibility has been placed on outdoor guides, search and rescue personnel, and other adventure industry workers to have some formal medical
training for the safety and health of their clients. For this reason the Wilderness Medical Society has established the Academy of Wilderness MedicineTM.
A fellow of the Academy of Wilderness Medicine (FAWM) will uphold the WMS and AWM Code of Ethics (described below) with the obligation to advance
the field of wilderness medicine and uphold its high standards, and to conform to principles of professional conduct.
· Participate in activities that enhance the welfare of the member's organization, clients, or profession.
· Participate in activities that fall within the scope of fiduciary, ethical, and legal obligations to their organizations and their clients.
· Effectively disclose all potential and actual conflicts of interest with the understanding that such disclosure does not preclude or
imply ethical impropriety.
· Recognize individual boundaries of competence and remain forthcoming and truthful about professional experience and qualifications.
