Wilderness Medicine at University of California, Davis

The Davis and Sacramento campuses of UC Davis lay in the Central valley of California, adjacent to the Sierra Nevada Mountain range. The lofty snow capped peaks are visible on clear winter days. This 400 mile long alpine sanctuary provides numerous wilderness opportunities ranging from whitewater rafting to ice climbing on 14,000 ft peaks. Wilderness medicine at UC Davis embraces the principles of the Wilderness Medical Society. We also are dedicated to wilderness preservation and aim to unite the overlapping disciplines of Medicine, Ecology and Biology.
