“Though I consider myself as an amateur, high altitude mountaineering is a passion for me and I go on self-guided expeditions every year, recently to the Himalayas, Ben Nevis, Kosciuszko, and Mont Blanc. I draw a lot of parallel between how emergency medicine and mountaineering expeditions work, since both involve a high degree of planning & care to prevent loss to life. Both can learn from each other”. – Imron Subhan
