About ISMM


The International Society for Mountain Medicine (ISMM) was founded in 1985 by the medical commission of the Union Internationale des Associations d’Alpinisme. The Society aims to bring together physicians, scientists and allied professionals interested in mountain medicine, to encourage research on all aspects of mountains, mountain peoples and mountaineers, and to spread scientific and practical information about mountain medicine around the world.
