Adventure Medicine Society
Glasgow University Adventure Medicine Society
GUAMS was formed by a band of students brought together by our love for adventure and medicine.
We want to create a space where we could share our bright-eyed, bushy-tailed wonder for all things encompassed by adventure medicine – with settings ranging from mountains to rainforests, oceans and everything in between.
As students in Glasgow we practically have the mountains at our doorstep; our goal is to escape city life from time to time and explore the Scottish Highlands with our fellow students.
We also intend to introduce members to the world of mountains, expeditions, and remote and rural medicine – by not only inviting experts from these fields to deliver talks throughout the year but also by holding informal social events where we can come together and share our own stories from travels near and far over a hot cup of your preferred beverage (and perhaps even put on our favourite adventure-themed films and documentaries).
