‘Taking Medicine To The Extremes’
A major new International ‘World Extreme Medicine conference and EXPO’ series with the first inaugural event in London April 2012 followed by Salt Lake City in September 2012 with the very best speakers from around the world, leading figures from the world of expedition and wilderness travel, displays from focused industry leaders and also awards. All CME accredited on a modular basis to allow you select just a day or to attend the entire medical expo.
Over the last ten years the care of casualties in a remote environment has come a long way. This has been driven by conflict, the apparent exponential rise in natural disasters and our capacity to respond on an international scale and not least by the evolving interest in the field of expedition and wilderness medicine. The conference concept was generated out of a desire to amalgamate the associated specialties in this field and to share the skills and knowledge we have acquired. It will run over 4 days and involve some of the major specialists in their field of remote and austure medicine.
Developed specifically with medical professionals in mind the International ‘World Extreme Medicine EXPO’ will also be of interest to other medical specialists and students for which there will be a discounted rate.
