Glasgow University Mountain Medicine Society (GUMMS)
We’re a hiking society that organises regular walks around Glasgow. We also run teaching events around wilderness medicine and have regular socials for all our members.
GUMMS is a small, relaxed and friendly society open to all students, not just medics, who enjoy hiking and are interested in learning about basic first aid skills required for hill walking. The society mainly goes on day trips to the hills around Glasgow and runs regular teaching events both on campus and on walks. We also hold social events throughout the year which mainly include pub trips after our hikes, board games nights, and pub quizzes.
Feel free to join one of our walks any time before you become a member to see what we do.
We advertise our events on our Facebook page and you can also join our mailing list here.
