What is WEMS about?
The Wilderness and Expedition Society (WEMS) is open to all healthcare students and has been developing over the last five years. We offer exciting and educational opportunities which are very different experiences to those in a lecture theatre, the aim being to equip our members with hands on, practical teaching in the treatment of medical emergencies in a remote setting.This teaching is from older medical students, doctors and guest speakers, all of whom have been enthusiastic and inspirational to our members.
What other activities do we do?
As well as teaching opportunities in the outdoors we also offer our members the chance to challenge themselves physically by taking part in events such as the Three Peaks as well as summer expeditions. Within WEMS strong friendships have been formed across different courses and year groups. WEMS is a welcoming and friendly society and we believe in the value of practical outdoor education, self challenge and team effort.
