Wilderness, mountain, and expedition medicine training for physicians is now well developed in North America and Europe. This paper describes the development and content of the first such program in Australia. The Special Skills Post in Expedition Medicine is a 6-month post, developed by General Practice Training Tasmania, that is integrated into general practice training and combines clinical placements in travel medicine, general practice, emergency medicine, a self-guided workbook covering core and elective topics, and an 8-day field trip.
