Wilderness Medicine Interest Group

The mission of the Wilderness Medicine Interest Group is to focus on the practice of resource-limited medicine in austere environments. The skills of wilderness medicine are applicable to any setting defined by the use of limited equipment and extreme environmental conditions: from remote wilderness settings, to developing world outposts, to urban disaster settings.

Wilderness medicine physicians should possess:

  • Develop and disseminate academic wilderness medicine educational and research content to the SAEM community through a variety of forums including SAEM18, SAEM newsletter, SAEM social media, and the interest group website

  • Increase knowledge dissemination within the interest group to promote:

a. collaboration among members
b. partnerships with other wilderness medicine organizations
c. nurturing future leaders within the field through mentorship

  • Begin the process of reaching academy consideration by recruiting members to meet the stated membership quota (This will be accomplished through augmented visibility and marketing)
