Wilderness Medicine Fellowship

Wilderness Medicine Fellowship

The UC San Diego Wilderness Medicine Fellowship is a one year clinical and educational experience. The goals of the fellowship are to provide physicians with knowledge, formal training, and clinical skills in Wilderness Medicine.

Each fellow will be expected to further their knowledge by performing original research, educating other physicians and medical students, and serving as a medical resource for outdoor organizations. Fellows will attend and present at local, national, and international conferences, gaining experience to become educators in Wilderness Medicine. There is a core curriculum; however, the fellow’s specific areas of interest will dictate their research and clinical activities. Wilderness Medicine is a multidisciplinary specialty incorporating disaster medicine, toxicology, hyperbaric medicine, ultrasound; all of which are established fellowships in the Department of Emergency Medicine at UC San Diego. The Wilderness Medicine fellow will work closely with experts in each of these fields.
