All Wilderness Outings courses are held in the beautiful mountain environment of the San Jacinto Mountains, near the town of Idyllwild. (Centrally located in the Southern California area, yet blissfully detached!) This is NOT a college or urban course- it’s wilderness medicine in the kind of ‘wilderness’ where you work and play!

Training for medical personnel who would like to enhance their skills and experience for use in the rural, wilderness, and technical rescue setting. This course is popular with all levels of medical professionals but primarily geared toward pre-hospital EMS providers.
The WEMT curriculum builds on EMS training and expertise to meet the special challenges of the remote and unconventional environment. It is designed for medical personnel working in rural EMS, search and rescue, law enforcement, disaster response, and on wilderness expeditions. Like all WMA International training, it represents the best application of the available science balanced by considerable clinical experience and the reality of providing medical care in difficult and dangerous places.
