Weinberg received his medical degree from the University of Vermont College of Medicine and completed his residency in emergency medicine at Albany Medical Center in New York. In addition, he completed a fellowship in emergency radiology at Massachusetts General Hospital.
He has completed a Diploma in Mountain Medicine (DiMM), and is in the process of completing his Fellowship in the Academy of Wilderness Medicine. He has worked as a wilderness EMT instructor, and his fieldwork has taken him from the Peruvian Amazon, where he practiced tropical medicine, to the Everest region of Nepal, where he specialized in treating high-altitude illnesses in climbers and trekkers.
Most recently, he worked as the ship’s physician on a traditional square-rigged sailing ship crossing the Indian Ocean from Indonesia to South Africa, and as the physician for the National Park Service for several seasons on an upper mountain rescue patrol on Denali/Mount McKinley in Alaska.
In addition to his interests in adventure and travel medicine, he is also an avid mountaineer, ice climber, rock climber, backcountry skier, paddler and offshore sailor.
