SWM Application Instructions

We are looking for highly motivated, serious, and mature students capable of maintaining their focus and work ethic while living communally for over two months in remote conditions. The Semester in Wilderness Medicine is an extremely rigorous academic experience, requiring tremendous dedication. Aerie's final acceptance of any student is subject to our thorough review. Aerie reserves the right to deny admission to anyone whom we believe is unable to meet the educational, physical, mental, social, or safety demands of the Semester in Wilderness Medicine.

Upon submission of this application, your information will be recorded into this program as a 'pending' student. Our Semester in Wilderness Medicine coordinator will reach out to you via phone or email within several business days of your submission. You may contact with additional questions or concerns in the meantime.
