In a complex and ever-changing world, it is important to train and prepare health providers for the unexpected and unthinkable. The Wilderness Medicine is a unique and comprehensive medical fellowship program that provides physicians with applied hands-on training experience in the provision of medical care in extreme and remote environments as well as in disaster response.
One of the unique qualities of this fellowship is derived from its ability to incorporate environmental conditions found on land, at sea, and in the air. The distinctive design of the fellowship challenges physicians to enhance their critical thinking skills and prepares them to be future physician-leaders ready to deliver quality health care in extreme and remote environments. This program is offered by the George Washington University Medical Faculty Associates Department of Emergency Medicine in Washington, D.C.
