How to Enroll

The elective takes place during Tufts University School of Medicine Block 12, which is generally April.  Exact dates vary from year to year.


The MMC Wilderness Medicine Elective is probably the oldest elective in the country, having been run since 1993.  It is unique in that it is the only elective taught entirely in the back country and entirely by physicians with expertise in wilderness medicine. 


This elective is very popular and wait lists start building years in advance.   Reach out to us if you are interested.
