Want to learn more about medicine outside the four walls of the lecture theatre or the modern hospital ward? Enjoy the outdoors and exploring the wilds of Scotland? Fancy combining the two?

Edinburgh University Wilderness Medics Society is a dynamic friendly society combining a love of the outdoors with studies of medicine or veterinary medicine. We host regular talks by inspiring speakers and have weekly indoor climbing sessions (every Thursday evening at Pleasance gym with free kit hire) as well as outdoor excursions such as hill walks, mountain biking trips and action packed weekends away.

You can take a look at our exciting plans for this year here!
