Now in its third year, the BMC Mountain Medicine Weekend (Hathersage, the Peak District) offers climbers, hill walkers, mountaineers and skiers the chance to receive first aid training from mountain medicine experts. 

Spend Saturday and/or Sunday (9-10 June) learning new skills through a series of one hour workshops, and join us for beer and a BBQ on Saturday evening whilst mountain medicine legend Dr Jim Duff (Everest SW Face and the International Porter Protection Group) talks high altitude first aid.

Led by our team of top instructors, the workshops require no prior medical knowledge and are open to anyone with an interest in the outdoors. Each day will include five one hour workshops and for BMG, AMI, BAIML or MTA members, there are CPD points up for grabs (1 CPD point per day attended). 

Workshop themes:

  • Saturday (9 June) UK mountains

  • Sunday (10 June) High altitude, the Alps and beyond

BBQ and beer will be provided on Saturday evening and after food, we'll be joined by Dr Jim Duff for a talk on high altitude first aid.

Single day tickets cost just £75. Weekend tickets are priced at £110.

Profits and donations will go towards BMC Expedition funding. Donations from Dr Jim Duff's talk will go to the International Porter Protection Group.
