Welcome to International World Extreme Medicine Conference & Expo

Now in its fifth year, the World Extreme Medicine conference challenges thinking, builds bridges and shares new and more effective approaches to medical practice in the world’s most remote and austere locations.

The conference focuses on four related medical fields: Pre-Hospital, Disaster & Humanitarian, Expedition, and Extreme Medicine. Together, our programme of fascinating talks from world-renowned experts in their field – from Arctic explorers to vascular surgeons, remote medics to NASA personnel – and practical sessions on innovations and field-proven techniques and ‘hacks’, will inspire you and enhance your skills, helping you to become a more effective and highly valued practitioner of remote medicine.
