Pimu La (Wilderness Medicine)

PIMU LA – June 6 – June 27, 2021

Learn and practice wilderness medicine skills in one of the most scenic and awe-inspiring sites of the Western Himalayas. This is a 3-week, high altitude, ‘base camp style’ expedition that includes an 8-day, self-contained trek over a 17,135 feet high pass. Attend didactic sessions and instructions delivered by seasoned US-based physicians and local instructors. Practice experiential learning including evacuation on the trail while taking in the full force of this stunning wilderness.

Designed for physicians, residents and medical, allied health and pre-medical students who have an interest in global health, altitude & mountain medicine, travel medicine, or backcountry first aid and who are willing to accept challenges of living and working in a resource-poor environment.

COVID-19
Given the global outbreak of the novel corona virus (COVID-19), along with surrounding unpredictable circumstances and travel restrictions, we have cancelled all 2020 expeditions. The health and safety of our medical team members and staff is of the utmost importance, in addition to the populations we serve. We expect to return to a full schedule starting in early 2021 depending on the easing of travel restrictions.
