Programs at CU

Wilderness & environmental medicine has been described as the art and science of keeping people healthy and thriving in remote or austere places…

The University of Colorado Wilderness and Environmental Medicine Section maintains partnerships with organizations which allow us to refine our educational offerings.

Our program is conceptualized in four pillars– education, research, clinical service, and community outreach. Learn more about our programs below:

WILDERNESS MEDICINE FELLOWSHIP

Wilderness medicine is defined by the practice of medicine in resource-limited, austere environments. This 15-month fellowship is based at the University of Colorado with the overall goal to train leaders in the growing field of wilderness medicine.

CLIMATE CHANGE INITIATIVE

Our Climate Change initiative seeks to empower physicians through education and effective communication skills and to characterize the impact of these changes on our health.

REMOTE MEDICINE

The Center for Remote Medicine and Austere Care was designed to serve clients charged with the welfare of those working in extreme environments with limited healthcare.

TRAVEL, EXPEDITION AND ALTITUDE MEDICINE (TEAM) CLINIC

We offer specialized altitude consultations where our goal is to optimize health in those individuals who live, work, or play in the world’s high places.
