Our mission

Advocate and support the development of mountain medicine in Aotearoa New Zealand to improve national capability to access, treat and evacuate casualties in the mountain environment.

Our goals

  1. To bring together Outdoor and Healthcare professionals with an interest in mountain medicine.
  2. To share best practice and aim for the highest standards of care in the mountainous and wilderness areas of New Zealand.
  3. To encourage research and science in mountains, and in the people that enjoy them.

We are working on growing our collaboration with a number of organisations and societies similar to ours across Aotearoa New Zealand and internationally.
