Ocean Medicine is aimed at medical and healthcare professionals interested in supporting marine based challenges, sporting events and expeditions. The course has been designed to cater for non-medics with a significant interest in marine/ocean events.
We set our Ocean Medicine course in the historic city of Plymouth 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 Sarah Outen, Dr Nick Carter, Laura Penhaul, Nuala Moore and Ian Couch.
The Ocean Medicine course is highly practical involving a significant amount of time on the water and in working in small groups. During the Ocean Medicine course, you will have the opportunity to complete the RYA Level 2 Powerboat Handling qualification.
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.
This course courses now include the WEM care package which contains branded stickers, lanyard and 10l dry bag.
