The Faculty of Travel Medicine

The Faculty of Expedition and Wilderness Medicine

Expedition medicine, also known as ‘wilderness medicine’, has been described as one of the four supporting pillars of travel medicine. According to The Oxford Handbook of Expedition and Wilderness Medicine, the field is “concerned with maintaining physical and psychological health under the stresses and challenges of expeditions.”

The Australasian College of Tropical Medicine is the pre-eminent organisation in the Australasian region representing professional interests in tropical medicine.
