We are changing and we are updating our ‘look’; we hope you like it!
Expedition & Wilderness Medicine started a world movement for medics working in remote and austere locations. We remain at the forefront in all we do and that’s why we are changing our name to ‘World Extreme Medicine’. It reflects a change in how we as a worldwide community of medics respond to emergencies and an ever widening range of opportunities for adventurous medics…
‘Where man goes, medicine must follow’.
We live in an evolving world where the spread of rapid pandemics is not only a hypothetical concept but a reality, where terrorism makes its way on to our streets and refugees suffer in distress.
Using our international conference, our course portfolio, our global community of like-minded individuals and our post-graduate programme, we offer a common meeting ground for sharing ideas, new research and to network.
Through our World Extreme Medicine conference, we have built a platform where inspiring medical minds meet, share experiences and promote cross-disciplinary working. We have an eclectic range of partners from a range of disciplines; medicine to zoology, military to aero medical retrieval. We introduce research, left field paradigms and innovation. The energy is unparalleled and the presence of so many amazingly energetic minds creates an electrifying experience.
We offer training to medical professionals, giving them the confidence to take their skills into challenging environments. Join us in some remarkable places including the jungles of Costa Rica and the foothills of the Himalayas for fully immersive, unique learning experiences, approved by the Royal College of Surgeons Edinburgh FPHC (subject to assent).
Partnering in a unique co-venture with the University of Exeter Medical School, WEM has developed the world’s first post-graduate qualification in Extreme Medicine. The programme fits with modern medicine’s values of clinical governance and demonstrates core competencies for providing travel and expedition medicine. Students learn in a modular programme, matching individual interests and passions to gain a Post Graduate Certificate, Diploma or Masters in Extreme Medicine.
World Extreme Medicine is dedicated to sharing and spreading best practice for the world’s medical professionals, willing to risk themselves to help others.
We hope that you like the new look we have created which, I believe melds our heritage with our new direction
