The Wilderness Medicine Interest Group was formed for students
whose interests go beyond providing medical care in a traditional hospital or clinic
setting. We are medical students who enjoy the great outdoors, and we like to
apply our knowledge wherever we find ourselves. WMIG comes together a few
times a year for lectures, procedural clinics, and outdoor excursions (rock
climbing in nearby state parks, ice climbing, mountain biking at Sugar Bottom,
or paddling Lake Macbride). Yearly events include a canoe derby and camping
trip as well as the challenging Wilderness Medicine Race. Be sure to contact us
if you are interested in joining!
