Exhibiting a poster at an international conference is a valuable experience for students, successful entrants will have an opportunity to share their ideas and knowledge. Selected posters will be displayed for all four days of the conference and seen by both delegates and speakers, giving authors the chance to discuss their work with an enthusiastic audience.
The competition will be judged by a panel of experienced medical professionals who have all practiced medicine in challenging environments.
The competition embraces the diverse nature of extreme medicine and we welcome applications from any healthcare professional at any stages in their career.
Posters designed for the competition must relate to one of the key areas of the International World Extreme Medicine Conference & Expo 2016:
- Day 1 – Disaster and Humanitarian Medicine
- Day 2 – Extreme, Expedition and Wilderness Medicine
- Day 3 – Human Endurance and Sports Medicine
- Day 4 – Pre-Hospital Medicine
Posters must be A1 size (594mm x 841mm), and in colour.
Entrants will be required to answer questions on their posters and display their poster for the full 4 days of the conference and must have tickets to attend the event. There should be a maximum of two entrants per poster submission. This year’s poster competition will be moderated by Dr Sean Hudson.
Abstract submissions can be sent using the form further down this webpage and the closing date is October 10th 2016 (successful authors will be informed shortly after this date).
Kindly note that as Dr Hudson spends much of his time in remote and austere locations, he has restricted access to a stable internet and email service. He’d be most grateful if you’d kindly limit routine enquiries.
