For Accomplished Individuals Who Desire:
· Distinction for professional education in wilderness medicine
· 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.
