WAM events



The Wilderness and Austere Medicine faculty at Dartmouth-Hitchcock held the 2nd Annual NECWAM (Northeast Consortium of Wilderness and Austere Medicine) on October 17th, 2020 from 8:45 am to 6:00 pm.

NECWAM is designed to bring together a community of medical rescuers, health care providers, and educators who care for patients in wilderness and austere settings throughout the Northeast.

The Symposium consists of a poster forum with 5- to 10-minute oral presentations highlighting research, education, and risk management activities. Included is also a lecture series which covers all aspects of wilderness medicine, as well as breakout sessions covering the regional wilderness medicine fellowships and the application of prolonged field care in the Search and Rescue arena.
