Description

Intro

Join WEMs experts for an unforgettable Desert Medicine course in Sharqiya Sands (formerly Ramlat al-Wahiba), Oman. This 6-day course will focus on medical and survival skills needed while working with teams across the world’s stunning desert landscapes.

Overview

Our Desert Medicine team draw from extensive experience across the world’s deserts and will be sharing their knowledge and skills, giving you a comprehensive understanding of how to lead and provide medical cover on desert expeditions.

Over one week our team will take you on a two-part expedition on foot, supported by vehicles and camels through Sharqiya Sands. The desert will be your home for the duration of the course with a brief stop midway for a shower and freshen up. You’ll learn how to overcome the obstacles of the desert and work with the environment to make the most of desert expeditions. The WEM team will guide you through what it takes to keep your expedition team healthy in a desert environment and deliver the clinical skills you will require should anything go wrong.

Expedition and logistical support will be provided by the hugely experienced team at Outward Bound Oman.

Accreditation will be offered through the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. We estimate 30 hours of CPD will be awarded for the complete course.
