My intention has always been to bring together the 3 specialties involved in the care of patients in a remote environment to create an atmosphere in which we can all learn from each other and inspire young medics to become involved in what I see as a fantastically stimulating and exciting specialty. I think the biography page on the conference website speaks for itself and looks a fabulous prospect of cutting edge medicine from many of the leading individuals in their field of remote medicine.
In the current atmosphere in medicine we all have to demonstrate our endeavours to develop our academic, clinical and practical skills. We have been fortunate that the conference has been awarded 31.75 CME by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). If you can demonstrate that a particular lecture has altered your medical practice you can double your CME. We have also been awarded 32.25 FAWM points for those who are pursuing the Fellowship of the Academy of Wilderness Medicine. For more information on this postgraduate fellowship awarded by the Wilderness Medical Society please visit their website here.
I’m looking forward to the conference and hope to see many of you there
