Welcome to International Extreme Medicine Conference & Expo
EXTREME MEDICINE 2014- Taking Medicine to the Extremes
The 2013 Conference hosted at Harvard Medical School received rave reviews from 'best medical conference we have ever been to'... to ...'simply amazing' and in 2014 we are back on home turf in London.
This specialist conference was developed specifically with medical professionals in mind, bringing together the learnings from various areas of remote medicine, and attracted delegates from around the world. 70% of the delegates were doctors with the rest of the audience being other medical specialists such as nurses, paramedics and 'aspiring' extreme medicine university students.
Previous conference speakers have included many of the very best speakers from around the world (including Dr Gordon Giesbrecht, Dr Kobi Peleg and Professor Chris Imray, who are the world experts in many remote extreme medicine fields including expedition and wilderness, pre-hospital, disaster and relief medicine.
Each day of the conference focuses on different aspects of Extreme Medicine. The first day covers Pre Hospital Medicine; the second day Expedition Medicine with days 3 and 4 covering Disaster & Medicine Humanitarian and Extreme Medicine respectively.
The 2014 conference aims to build on the success of the previous Royal Society of Medicine and Harvard Medical School conferences by gathering an even more eclectic array of speakers, more research findings being presented and by providing gateways to other areas of medical science. With the conferences charity partner for 2014, EverestER presenting and greater networking opportunities this is the conference to attend if you have any interest in remote medicine
