Course summary

This online course is run with the collaborative partner Diploma MSc.

On successful completion, you will become a leader in the field of Expedition and Wilderness Medicine and can go on to study the MSc in Expedition and Wilderness Medicine.

Travel for both work and pleasure is becoming increasingly prevalent.

In this emerging market, current job adverts are asking for doctors and other healthcare professionals (HCPs) with training, experience and specialization in wilderness and expedition medicine.

Examples may include adventure holidays, charity work and overseas employment - scenarios could be anything from climate research expeditions, treks and charity work to going into space.


Each of the six modules has the same assessment format:

Academic Forum - 40%
Reflective Journal - 10%
Module activity - 20%
Case-based examination - 30%


The course has direct relevance to the demands of working roles and will assist in career enhancement and support specialisation.

It is envisaged that most students will be accepting expedition-related roles or aspiring to such positions.

A postgraduate qualification gives you a competitive advantage that will set you apart from other applicants.
