Wilderness Health Society


The Wilderness Health Society (WHS) is a CHIP student committee that strives to give Academic Health Center (AHC) students the ability to expand their healthcare learning into another arena--the outdoors.

WHS really serves two functions:

  • providing students a chance to meet other AHC peers that may have similar recreational interests; and
  • sponsoring events and lectures that will supplement classroom studies, broadening our learning into skills that will help us provide care in emergency cases when we must think quickly and act with limited resources.
