This year, our World Extreme Medicine Conference will host around 300 lecture and seminar sessions across 4-days, in 4 separate theatres at Dynamic Earth in Edinburgh, 18th – 21st November.
We provide a platform for leaders and inspiring medical minds in extreme and austere medicine to meet, and create the most elite gathering of extreme medicine clinicians in the world. Collectively, we facilitate and share knowledge and skills around key topics, impacting on how we practice medicine in the most hostile and challenging conditions.
The four consecutive high level conference days will each address a different theme of medicine in the extreme; Disaster and Humanitarian; Extreme, Expedition and Wilderness; Endurance Sports and Pre-Hospital Medicine. Practical sessions, workshops and smaller seminars will run concurrently throughout the conference schedule, including a special programme on vulnerable populations and the particular issues affecting women and children during humanitarian disasters.
