Expedition and Wilderness Medicine - Diploma to MSc

We are pleased to announce the development of a formal pathway allowing International Diploma in Expedition and Wilderness Medicine students to complete to Masters level.

Collaboration between Plymouth University Peninsula Schools of Medicine and Dentistry and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow will allow successful students on our Expedition and Wilderness Medicine course to finalise their Diploma research proposal, leading to an MSc in Global and Remote Healthcare.

The Global and Remote Healthcare programme is the original and oldest MSc in expedition and remote medicine globally. Initially developed to prepare British Antarctic survey medics for work in remote polar locations, it has now developed to recognise the importance of global health within our specialist field. On successful completion of the International Diploma in Expedition and Wilderness Medicine, students will now have the option to complete a further 60 credit MSc research project through Peninsular Schools of Medicine and Dentistry.

The cost for the International Diploma in Expedition and Wilderness Medicine is currently £6000. This fee includes all residential costs for the Glenmore Lodge, Devon and Morocco modules.

Completion to MSc (60 credit research dissertation) is predicted to cost £3200.

The third Diploma intake will be commencing in November 2017 and there are still a few spaces left. For more information, please contact us at or visit our webpage.
