Ocean and Marine Medicine is aimed at medical and healthcare professionals interested in marine-based challenges, sporting events, ocean swims, extended sailing trips and expeditions. The course has been designed to cater for non-medics with a significant interest in ocean/ marine events.

World Extreme Medicine course alumni have left to take part in expeditions across the globe, responded to natural disasters and emergencies and gain placements with organisations such us Raleigh InternationalUK-Med, Team Rubicon and Médecins Sans Frontières as well as set of to swim Cape Horn, row unimaginable distances and help others achieve thier lifetime ambitions on the water.


We set our Ocean and Marine Medicine course in the historic town of Brixham well known for its maritime heritage and contribution to ocean exploration.

Developing the best curriculum for this course came through consultation with a group of world renowned ocean explorers, sports people and logisticians including record setting ocean rowers Sarah Outen & Laura Penhaul, expedition yacht skipper Dr Nick Carter,  Ocean Swimmer Nuala Moore and Ian Couch veteran on many Atlantic Rowing Challenges.

The Ocean and Marine Medicine course is highly practical involving a significant amount of time on the water and in working in small groups.

Accreditation will be offered through the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. We estimate 24 hours of CPD will be awarded for the complete course.
