(Redirected from WEM)

World Extreme Medicine (formerly Expedition & Wilderness Medicine) is the world’s leading provider of expedition, wilderness and remote medicine training courses for medical professionals.

WEM was born out of expeditions over 20 years ago and offers training, extensive consultancy and medical support for projects across the globe.


WEM courses provide medical professionals with the expert knowledge and practical skills needed to become a valuable member of an expedition or remote medical team. Courses range from ‘Core’ courses, which teach a wide range of extreme medicine topics with essential skills workshops, to ‘Specialised’ courses which offer an immersive environment specific learning experience based in incredible locations across the world.

All courses are open to doctors, nurses, paramedics and other medical professionals providing medical cover in remote or austere environments. Students and non-medics are encouraged to discuss any training needs directly with the office team.
