Blue Ridge Adventure Medicine

Teaching Safety,
Inspiring Adventure…

Our mission is to provide affordable, practical, evidence-based medical education to outdoor adventurers through hands-on experiences.

About Us

Blue Ridge Adventure Medicine works to provide medical education and adventure learning opportunities to within the southeast and to providers living and working in the southeast. We work closely with the Wilderness Medicine Fellowship Programs in the region at Virginia Tech Carilion Clinic, Wake Forest and Medical College of GA at Augusta University.

Blue Ridge Adventure Medicine is an organization created in 2012 to fill a need for high quality affordable wilderness medicine education in the Southeast. The founders felt after hosting the 5th Annual Student Conference that there remained a need for more interactive and hands-on courses with scenario-based learning in the region. Blue Ridge Adventure Medicine is an effort to fill that void in the Southeast. We offer a variety of general and activity specific wilderness medicine courses which can be tailored to multiple ability levels from the healthcare provider in the wilderness to the outdoor enthusiast with no prior medical knowledge. In 2014, we changed from an LLC to a nonprofit group as this was more inline with our mission.
