Wilderness Medicine Interest Group (WMIG)
Welcome to the Wilderness Medicine Interest Group (WMIG)
The Wilderness Medicine Interest Group is a resource for current medical students to gain exposure to the field of Wilderness Medicine. We will coordinate events which are directed toward enhancing and understanding the subspecialty of wilderness medicine, including but not limited to, hostile environments, envenomations, and disaster preparedness.
Club Events and Activities
"Medical Wilderness Adventure Race" is an event in which simulated scenarios must be solved by teams of students. These scenarios mimic what might be encountered in an austere environment with limited medical supplies. Teams must think on their toes and work together to provide appropriate care. Each station is timed and the team that had the most positive outcome at each station wins a prize. This event will be a fun, educational, hands-on way for students to learn improvisation, as well as handy techniques to treat "in the wild".
