WEM Academy

World Extreme Medicine (WEM) has been delivering wilderness, expedition and extreme medical training for the past two decades. We seek to support, inspire and connect medical professionals who work in the most challenging environments on earth.

WEM Academy is a new digital resource for extreme medical professionals. It is a one-stop-shop for concise, topic-based teaching videos, interviews, conference talks, podcasts and academic publications. It disseminates essential expertise and best practice to professionals working across the full range of settings, from jungle to polar, trauma care to mental health and everything in-between. Whilst the bulk of the content is specially produced, there are opportunities for anyone from our global community to submit their work for publication via the submission portal and to be part of the conversation, so get involved!

Please share your thoughts with us either by commenting beneath the videos or emailing us directly at [email protected] so we can craft this into the best it can be! Thanks for joining us on this new digital adventure.
