The discipline of Wilderness Medicine has evolved over the last twenty years as the need has been recognized to provide specific medical training to caregivers who will be working or recreating in remote areas where medical response will be significantly delayed.
In response to this need, Wilderness Medical Associates has long been recognized as the leading provider of wilderness medicine training worldwide. Through a combination of quality educational materials, instructor hiring and training standards second to none, and interactive, experiential educational methods, Wilderness Medical Associates provides the finest medical training available.
Adventure Risk Management is proud to sponsor a variety of Wilderness Medical Associates courses combined with course support and sponsorship that will provide an educational experience that will leave you confident in the medical skills you need in the environments you love.
Most courses are located near the beautiful town of Idyllwild in the incredible San Jacinto Mountains, where you will find scenic alpine hiking, world-class multi-pitch climbing at Tahquitz and Suicide Rocks, bouldering, and fantastic mountain biking terrain. Or simply hang out in Idyllwild and enjoy art galleries and great restaurants! Joshua Tree National Park is located a short 90 minute drive from Idyllwild, providing dramatic hiking and climbing as well.
