Wilderness Medicine Fellowship

The Wilderness Medical Society (WMS) sponsors our unique Wilderness Medicine Fellowship.

Quarterly didactics with regularly scheduled outdoor trips in Montana’s backcountry provide hands-on learning of medical care under harsh conditions. We focus on practical, applied learning. Resident feedback and involvement guides program development. After finishing the course, residents can apply for Fellow in the Academy of Wilderness Medicine in the Wilderness Medical Society.

Topics include

  • Backcountry medical care.
  • Global health.
  • Exercise physiology.
  • Temperature and altitude extremes.
  • Patient stabilization and transport.
