You’ve purchased your #VirtualWEM20 ticket, mapped out your day and prepped your home office (with tonnes of snacks, obviously) for a weekend of extreme content. But what next? We’ve created this blog to answer that very question – from setting up…
We Are Back: #WEM21
For our 10th year, the World Extreme Medical Conference celebrates its anniversary with its return to Dynamic Earth, Edinburgh, from 13th-15th November 2021.
Over three days, the 10th World Extreme Medicine Conference will serve as a springboard for inspiring approaches and new thinking to medical practices. The event attracts over 900 professionals, bringing together the world’s most respected names in extreme medicine alongside delegates from over 30 countries. These individuals represent a diverse array of backgrounds including special forces medics, expeditioners, extreme athletes, war surgeons, humanitarians, medical researchers, emergency first responders and organisations such as Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF).
The unique energy created by gathering these bright, inquisitive, and hungry minds together in one place is unparalleled. The networking, career and educational opportunities are limitless.
What is the World Extreme Medicine Conference?
The WEM Conference is an exciting platform for medical minds to share experiences, innovations, best practise, promote cross-disciplinary working and generate new research.
The conference focuses on a number of interrelated medical fields: Pre-Hospital, Disaster & Humanitarian, Expedition, Endurance and Extreme Sport, Space and Extreme Medicine. We work with a range of multi-disciplinary partners, and together, offer a programme of fascinating talks from world-renowned experts in their field – from Arctic explorers to vascular surgeons, remote medics to NASA & ESA personnel.
#WEM21 will feature practical plenaries and hands-on workshops that explore field-proven techniques and provide you with medical ‘hacks’ to inspire and enhance your skills. These sessions are designed to help you to become a more effective practitioner of remote medicine and allow you to truly take medicine to the ‘extreme’.
