U.S. Army Uses Wilderness Medicine to Train and Treat Elite Soldiers | PR Newswire

The U.S. Army is part of the evolving field of wilderness medicine and offers opportunities for soldiers who have an interest and expertise in both medicine and the outdoors to pursue a challenging and unique career path. The Madigan Army Medical Center became the first medical treatment facility in the Department of the Defense (DoD) to offer a one-year Austere and Wilderness Medicine Fellowship. Maj. Hunter Winegarner, MD, a Special Forces Battalion surgeon stationed at Fort Carson, Colo., completed this Fellowship in 2014, which prepared him to treat and train the Army’s elite soldiers.
