Expedition & Wilderness Medicine is pleased to announce the launch of the much- requested Dive & Marine CME accredited wilderness medical training course on the Great Barrier Reef
Topics covered will include pre-expedition medicals, diving-related illness, marine envenomation, emergency treatments and casevac plans. Practical sessions include boat handling, search and rescue and underwater communications. We will aim for at least 2 dives a day, including a night dive. At the end of the week, participants should feel confident to act as medical officer on a diving expedition, or in any diving medical practice
Diving & Marine Medicine participants will arrive in the Gladstone area and transfer to the Eastern Voyager on a Sunday morning. It is advisable to fly into the region on the Saturday if possible to get over jet lag before starting the course. You’ll then meet the rest of your group, with whom you’ll be living and diving over the following week. One of the challenges of expedition life is living in close quarters in a group, with people who you would not naturally choose as companions…so please bring a positive attitude and a sense of humour!
