Learn about our society

We're Leicester Wilderness and Emergency Medicine Society (LWEMS) at the University of Leicester, a friendly bunch of outdoorsy people who run teaching sessions on practical aspects of pre-hospital, wilderness and emergency medicine for everyone from years one to five. We all love the outdoors and are keen on running social trips all over the UK!

We run our popular Intro to Emergency Medicine course, plus regular events and trips like our Wilderness Medicine Weekend, Refugee Camp Simulation game and camping/hiking trips. We support phase one students with Basic Life Support and clinical skills practice ready for starting placements. You'll also have the opportunity to join a variety of online revision sessions.

Don't forget, students on allied health courses at Leicester (e.g. nursing, midwifery, physio or ODP) are always welcome to our events too!
