Working with the world-renowned N/a’an ku sê Foundation, we’ve designed a brand-new Conservation Medicine course unlike anything else in this area of extreme medicine, a ‘One Medicine’ course. If you’re keen to take your medical skills into conservation projects, nature reserves, remote communities or simply have a passion for conservation, this course is for you!
Open to both medical and animal health professionals you will explore the amazing work of conservation projects and what is required to take your medical skills into the wild. This amazing gathering will allow you to learn from the best, plus you will have the opportunity to network and meet like-minded people from around the world.
One Medicine is a movement to create networks and collaborations between human medicine and veterinary medicine.
5 excellent reasons to attend the Conservation Medicine Course:
• World-renowned team – a highly specialised group of experts including Dr Rudie van Vuuren (physician and conservationist), Marlice van Vuuren (conservationist), resident vets and the N/a’an ku sê Foundation’s medical team will be sharing their experiences and delivering an unrivalled syllabus of content.

• Hands on experience – there will be practical workshops on field-proven techniques to inspire and enhance your skills; helping you to become a more effective and highly valued practitioner of remote conservation medicine. You will also visit Epikuro, a remote settlement which is home to the Foundation’s Lifeline Clinic seeing first-hand how this medical facility is serving the wider community.
