There is nothing more important than our mental health, it’s integral to our physical health and our ability to the best medics we can be, which is why we came up with the idea of the WEMski Conference.
A conference like no other, where you’ll experience a brilliant balance of enjoying a stunning outdoor environment, while engaging with a forward-thinking super experienced faculty to increase knowledge base and build upon personal development.
Event: WEMski ‘Mental Health in Medics’
Dates: 14th – 21st March 2020
Location: Livigno, Italian Alps
Here are 3 excellent reasons why you need to attend:
Network with world-renowned experts – this is the perfect event to converse with your counterparts and colleagues from around the world as well as meeting an eclectic mix of remarkable experts such as Prof Chris Imray, Senior surgeon and world leading cold weather expert, Dr Natalie Taylor of ‘Ice Maidens’ fame, Clinical Psychologist Dr Kate Baecher and Dr Sophie Redlin, mental health awareness and emotional resilience trainer. Plus, Eoin Walker, Trauma lead for WEM, Humanitarian nurse Josie Gilday and WEM founder Mark Hannaford.
Be inspired to achieve great things – we are super proud to have been able to attract so many extraordinary speakers; from maverick mountain and Antarctic medics to record-breaking and adventurous mountaineers, plus ridiculously talented, intelligent and utterly outstanding experts in extreme physical and psychological areas who will be speaking and personally sharing their experiences and advice that will help mould the medical future – we cannot wait!
Earn CPD credits and further your career – where else can you enhance your knowledge, and increase your skill set to ensure you are in the best position possible to further your medical career. This conference will centre around real-world experiences of extreme physical and psychological challenges, human factors in extreme medicine, mental wellness and leadership, medicine in the extremes and much more. For those attending and completing the conference, accreditation will be offered (we estimate 20 hours of CPD) through the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.
This unique medical gathering is like no other; five days of inspiring content and thought-provoking presentations, mornings out on the slopes networking with the faculty, two full days of skiing plus a 3-course hog roast at the top of the mountain on the final day.
Our WEMski conference also comes highly recommended from past attendees:
A brilliant week has come to an end with world Extreme medicine at WEMski. Thanks to a brilliant faculty! Learnt loads about perseverance, team working and adventures, made amazing new friends, giggles about crazy stories and decided to binge watch Narcos!
Thank you all for a soul recharge. It’s exactly what I needed. Will be back next year!
