Antarctic Medical Conference 2014, with Paul Auerbach
(depart from U.S. & voyage end date) ABOARD NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC EXPLORER
- Spend a week exploring Antarctica aboard our fully equipped, ice‐strengthened ship.
- 40+ years of Antarctic expeditions assures you of the best possible experience.
- Few things compare to a hike, Zodiac cruise or kayak foray amid the icescapes of Antarctica.
Glide around enormous tabular icebergs by Zodiac, walk along beaches covered with thousands of penguins, and kayak amid abundant wildlife. Learn about the Lindblad legacy, dating from 1966, as you travel with Ice Masters, Expedition Leaders and Naturalists who have hundreds of journeys under their parkas. On every expedition, a National Geographic Photographer will give talks and one‐on‐one photo tips in the field, where it counts. An Undersea Specialist captures rarely seen footage of life beneath the icy surface for viewing in the comfort of the ship’s lounge.
Join us aboard the National Geographic Explorer, a state of the art expedition ship. The medical element will be led by Paul Auerbach, MD, MS, FACEP, FAWM, who is the Redlich Family Professor of Surgery in the Division of Emergency Medicine at Stanford University. He is the world’s leading authority on wilderness medicine and is one of the world’s leading authorities on emergency medicine.
A graduate of Duke University and Duke University School of Medicine, as well as the Stanford Graduate School of Business, Dr. Auerbach is editor of the definitive medical textbook Wilderness Medicine, and author of the books Medicine for the Outdoors (named one of the 10 outstanding healthcare titles for 2009 by the Wall Street Journal), Field Guide to Wilderness Medicine, Diving the Rainbow Reefs, and Management Lessons from the E.R. He is a founder and past President of the Wilderness Medical Society, and editor emeritus of the peer‐reviewed medical journal Wilderness & Environmental Medicine. Dr. Auerbach serves as Chief Medical Officer for Healthline Networks, national medical consultant on hazardous marine animals to the Divers Alert Network (DAN), member of the National Medical Committee for the National Ski Patrol System, and elected member of the Council on Foreign Relations.
Allegedly one of the world’s most amazing medical expeditions!!
