Mission Statement

Expedition and Wilderness Medicine

recognises its responsibility and is continually striving to reduce the environmental impact of the work we do and to minimise the impact of our medical training courses on the environment within which we operate.  We are therefore committed to continual improvement in our environmental performance, preventing pollution and minimising our effects through a complete programme of achievable targets and then in turn to make our activities environmentally and socially positive.

Community and Charity Support

Each of our medical training courses has a relevant charity partner to which a proportion of the course fees are paid.

UK Expedition Medicine Course – Lake District & Dartmoor

Expedition and Wilderness Medicine is supporting the Woodland Trust, the UK’s leading woodland conservation charity, by funding a dedicated site at Dufton Ghyll Wood, Cumbria – helping the environment in the face of climate change.   The Dartmoor site has yet to be selected.

For each UK course run a further quarter of an acre is supported.
