Our exciting WEMski mini-conference is bringing together inspiring adventurers, leading medics and extreme environment professionals delivering content centred around real-world experiences of extreme physical and psychological challenges, impacts of stressors, excellence in leadership, medicine in the extremes and much more. For anyone looking to perform better in their extreme medical career and cope with the impacts of being in an extreme situation, this is the event for you.
During your time with us, the mornings are your own; allowing you dedicated time on the mountains (all abilities are welcome) to enjoy and take advantage of 125km of skiing, in addition to an extensive freeride mountain, 45km of cross-country walking/skiing paths and several snow-parks that play host to international events across the Livigno Valley.
The afternoon conference sessions will be filled with captivating content and traditional WEM style-teaching; covering practical clinical skills alongside informative lectures and interesting panel discussions. There will be dedicated sessions where you will have the unique opportunity to speak with our WEM faculty; plus, for further inspiration you’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and gain a valuable insight into how our world-renowned speakers have overcome significant individual mental challenges.
