About Wilderness Medical Associates International (WMAI)

Wilderness Medical Associates International(WMAI) is dedicated to the development of remote and practical medicine around the globe. We are medical and rescue professionals, researchers, experienced educators, and advocates for healthcare in wilderness contexts. Our curriculum, overseen and continually revised by a committee of medical practitioners and academics, has been taught on all seven continents.

WMAI annually trains over 10,000 medically and non-medically trained learners around the world. Our courses are hosted by colleges and universities, medical schools, camps, outdoor adventure companies, rural ambulance services, private industry, and government entities. WMAI will train responders and practitioners needed for medical care in low resource settings, anywhere in the world.

This course makes me feel much better about being in the backcountry – I know when to be ok, when to be worried, and when to be really worried.
