I teach fellows, residents, medical students and college students. I have a clinical teaching service in my hospital.
But I also teach wilderness and survival medicine to undergraduate students. Many people have asked for the reading list for my class.
If you're curious, here's the reading list from the Spring 2022 version of the class.
The optional books deal with a specific wilderness medicine topic covered in the course. My goal is to allow the students to choose books based on their interests.
