Who Are Exile Medics?
Exile Medics is an organisation bringing together the adventurous and the adventure medical professional, wherever they come from. Exile Medics provides expert medical support to expeditions and sporting events anywhere on the globe, though we specialise in the toughest, most extreme sports events going. We aim to deliver the highest standards of care in any environment, from jungle to desert; the tropics to the Arctic.
We hold ourselves to the same standards as we do in our work within the National Health Service with quality healthcare and patient safety underpinning everything we do. We are continually looking for ways to improve our service, our relationship with expedition and event leaders and directors and ways to create a supportive environment for Exiles to develop their skills.
If you're a medic, then we need you. We need Nurses, Students, Paramedics and Doctors to come with us to events anywhere on the planet* and deliver the finest Expedition and Wilderness Medicine around.
If you need Exile Medics on your event, or would like to be an Exile Medic, then Contact Us.
