Extreme Medicine 2014
Meet the world leaders in Pre Hospital Care, Disaster & Humanitarian and Remote Medicine at the Royal Society of Medicine in November.
Each day of the conference focuses on different aspects of Extreme Medicine. The first day covers Expedition & Wilderness; the second day was built around Pre-Hospital Medicine with days 3 and 4 covering Disaster Medicine and Extreme Medicine respectively.
Sir Ranulph Fiennes is delighted to endorse the Extreme Medicine Conference Series. The subject matter, close to his heart, brings together the disparate but complimentary, and often overlapping fields, of Extreme & Expedition, Humanitarian & Disaster and Pre Hospital Care medicine.
It is medicine that saves the lives of not only the most remote explorer but also populations devastated by natural disasters, covering the most in need in the most vulnerable of places.
The conference serves to bring global leaders in these areas to share knowledge, network and introduce new equipment and techniques as well as presenting cutting edge research. It is this excellence in extremes which Sir Ranulph is proud to be associated with.
