Welcome to International Extreme Medicine Conference & Expo

EXTREME MEDICINE 2015 - Taking Medicine to the Extremes

NEW FOR 2015

We've updated the content of the 2015 conference to cover issues of key importance to Extreme Medicine in the here-and-now. We've also made the format more interactive, from practical sessions to the Innovation Platform (unique to Extreme Medicine), which offers ambitious young medics an opportunity to pitch for seed funding for their research.

Tickets on sale from March 31

"The London Extreme Medicine Conference was an international gathering of some of the best Extreme Medicine minds in the world. It provided an amazing, stimulating and accessible forum for all to question and learn more about this diverse branch of medicine. All the contributors and delegates were superbly friendly and approachable and provided countless networking opportunities to forge links between members of this worldwide faculty to progress the field of Expedition, Wilderness and Extreme Medicine." Dr Alex Rowe, 2014

The International Extreme Medicine Conference was developed specifically with medical professionals in mind, and brings together inspiring speakers from right across the remote medicine spectrum to share their learnings, experience and techniques with delegates from all over the world. Our 2013 Conference at Harvard Medical School received rave reviews, ranging from 'best medical conference we have ever been to'... to ...'simply amazing', and the 2014 conference, held at The Royal Society of Medicine, saw tickets in a number of different categories selling out well in advance. We are delighted to be in London again this year, and also to be running a 2-day Extreme Medicine Conference in Brisbane, from 20-21 June 2015.

88% of respondents rated the 2014 event as Excellent, or Very Good, telling us:
“Great conference with very knowledgeable speakers with a vast amount of experience!“
"I would rate it one of the two best conferences available at the moment for professionals working in emergency and critical care environments.”
We estimate that the WMS designates this educational activity for a maximum of 29.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Each physician should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. The Australian College of Rural & Remote Medicine is likely to accredit the conference for 30 Core Points, and the pre-conference workshop for 10 PRPD & 7 Core + 10 EM MOPS.
