outer himalayas (winter camp)
During this 4-week travel, our team will hold clincis in remote villages, Tibetan settlements, monasteries, monastic schools and a nunnery located in the Dhauladhar (White Mountain) Range of the Western Himalayas. Daily work schedule includes seven hours of clinical and preventive health care during which participating health care workers and students work under the supervision of US-based and board certified physicians to provide care and educate patients on issues related to personal and oral hygiene, diet and nutrition. Free medicines and supplies are provided to hundreds of patients of all ages. Five to six out-patient stations will be set up and teams will be rotated periodically to allow each team member to gain a supervised hands-on clinical experience in all available specialties. Each station will have one interpreter. Patients with serious ailments that require follow-ups will be referred to the closest state hospital.

PIMU lA (WILDERNESS MEDICINE EXPEDITIONs)
Our wilderness medicine expeditions are designed for students of all levels who have an interest in global health, altitude and mountain medicine, or back country first aid. Didactic sessions, case study discussions, evidenced-based medicine reviews, and simulated patient encounters allow participants to expand their practical and academic knowledge through problem-based learning in low-resource settings. An extended period of camping and hiking at or above the Himalayan tree line provides a rare opportunity to learn and practice basic survival and leadership skills in a lesser-known region of the Western Himalayas.
