We are a society who enjoy taking medicine outdoors. We arrange workshops, local hikes and weekend camping trips which aim to help students develop their medical skills outside of the hospital environment, while being part of a fun, social and inclusive society. We cover a wide range of topics including mountain, jungle, polar, desert and ocean medicine. Our local walks help our members to explore and learn to navigate the stunning New Forest and South Downs national parks, whilst our weekend trips take us further afield to test our outdoor skills, and escape university life, in places such as the Brecon Beacons, the Peak District and the South Dorset coast. Come and join our enthusiastic society for all years and abilities where we hope you will meet like-minded people, make new memories and have great adventures!
