Wild Trials 2018

Wild Trials is a student wilderness medicine competition hosted annually by one of the many Wilderness Medicine societies at medical schools across the UK. Following our successful application, Manchester is hosting the competition this year! It involves two days of outdoor scenarios and challenges testing skills in wilderness medicine, pre-hospital care, emergency medicine, teamwork, expedition and orienteering. This is a great opportunity for students to learn more about this area outside of our curriculum and develop valuable skills. We encourage students from any course to join. Each university can register one team, fitting the following criteria:

• Four people per team

• Maximum of two final-year medical students

• One team member should be non-clinical, pre-clinical or 1st/2nd year

• Be mixed gender

• Currently we are allowing 1 team per university (to allow participation from as many universities as possible). However, this may extend to 2 depending on application numbers.

• Team members can be from any course (not just medicine!)


Student Update:

Chris Wheeler reports, the North West Pre-hospital Education Programme for Medical Students in conjunction with the North West Air Ambulance programme is hoped to commence in September 2015 at the Universities of Manchester, Liverpool and Lancaster. This is exciting news for pre-hospital medical education in the North West and follows on from the inaugural conference held in May which was a sell out.
