The course has been developed for medical professionals, expedition and wilderness medics working in cold and at altitude environments. The Polar Medicine course aims to use the winter evenings to cover the essential expedition medical skills required to care for and treat injuries and illnesses likely to occur in this harsh environment, whilst the days are spent in the field.
Join Dr Freer, Dr Martin ‘Doc Martin’ Rhodes (CMO for the TV production ‘Poles Apart’ and Antarctic Logistics & Expeditions), and Dr John Apps (MO at Union Glacier in Antarctica) for an amazing trek combining adventure and learning as you make your way up to Dr Freer’s seasonal home at the world’s highest medical clinic at Everest Base Camp.
The conference will deliver four days of 31 CME-accredited knowledge, insight and innovation in the field of remote medicine and its sub-disciplines: expedition and wilderness, pre-hospital and disaster and relief. Delivering these messages will be speakers who are amongst the global leaders in these specialised fields, who are ideally placed to provide expert knowledge.
Developed for medical professionals and advanced medics working in hot or arid climates, the Desert & Wilderness Medicine medical training course aims to introduce participants to the skills required for working in hot, arid and sub Saharan areas, and to care for and treat injuries and illness likely to occur in this fascinating environment.
The Jungle Medicine tutors will develop the skills of the participants through practical sessions and hands on experience, treating snake bites, identifying tropical diseases, heat related illnesses and managing the health of an expedition in the field. The days will be used to experience and develop jungle survival skills, travelling in the jungle on land or by river, setting up camp, river crossing, cooking and lighting fires, managing casualties and evacuating them when needed: skills without which a successful medical response is extremely difficult.
