Medicine is all about the team

We have a lot of support from the University, fellow students and other societies, here are some of the organisations we work with.

There are many other student wilderness medicine societies across the UK, we often liaise closly with the other societies in Scotland.






We all meet yearly at the Student Wilderness Medicine Conference.

This Years conference is in Liverpool on the 12th-14th of October.


The British Association of Immediate Care Scotland (BASICS Scotland) is a charity based in Perthshire. We specialise in promoting the provision of high-quality pre-hospital emergency care to health professionals in Scotland through the provision of 350 annual course places funded by NES.


Braemar Mountain Rescue team is a registered charity helping provide rescue services in the Southern Cairngorms and Grampian area. Braemar Mountain Rescue Association was formed in 1965 by a group of local people who were concerned about the increasing number of mountain accidents and the resultant hardship and risk to local residents, who, often with no mountaineering experience or proper clothing, were called upon to rescue others and all too often to carry home the bodies of those for whom rescue had come too late. 


Braemar Mountain Rescue Team operates from two bases in the Cairngorm National Park. The team headquarters is in Braemar and we also have a subsidiary base in Ballater
