Wilderness & Expedition Medicine

 Southampton Wilderness and Expedition Medicine Society (SWEMS) gives you the chance to take medicine outdoors.

We arrange medical workshops and events throughout the year, allowing you to develop your medical skills and build confidence in mountain, jungle, polar and ocean environments. Additionally, we fundraise for local charities by organising trips such as the 3 Peaks Challenge and Lizard’s Point to Land’s End trek.

Finally, (and most importantly) we have regular social event to meet new friends from both Southampton and other medical schools. Keep an eye out for our annual ‘Oreinbeering’ social!
