Fantastic conference! Well worth the trip from Australia. So many good sessions to go to.
Thank you #edinburgh! #wem19! You were all fantastic!
Brilliant first day. Best medical conference I’ve been to. Truly inspiring.
Great first day! Never been to a medical congress like that! Whoa.
On my way home from #WEM19. An inspiring and emotive few days in the company of such an impressive list of speakers and delegates! Lots of great conversations and valuable insights. Looking forward to repeat next year!
Thanks for great experience and motivation to developing my skill. See you next year
I hoped to come to #WEM19 to get inspired… Listening to Rudie Van Vuuren has achieved that, *10. He’s a Doctor, has represented his country at cricket & rugby, campaigning Conservationist, MBA, para veterinarian, pilot + a whole lot else! Thank you #followyourpassion #inspired
Just back from speaking on the main stage at the World Extreme Medicine Conference in Edinburgh, #WEM19. The opening message was from the International Space Station and this set the tone for amazing & inspiring conference. Well done everyone at #ExpedMedicine #extremeexpo
Thanks to @Expedmedicine @extremeexpo for a fabulous conference in Edinburgh. I leave recharged, re-motivated and full of a sense of adventure. Thanks for the reminder of what’s important! To friends old and new. #WEM19
Thanks #WEM19 for putting on such a diverse program, and for giving is the unique opportunity to meet such inspirational medics from across the globe. Great to meet you all – and looking forward to building further working relationships from the fantastic networking opportunities.
Reflecting on my weekend at #WEM19 – a weekend of friends, new and familiar; of learning so much from so many, and getting to share my experiences; of wonderful meetings over both coffee and drinks. Edinburgh, until next year.
#WEM19 some amazing speakers so far and now the Chief medical Officer of NASA – some incredible innovations coming from research in space.
Had an amazing time listening to brilliant minds at #WEM19 in Edinburgh this weekend! To engage with and learn about so many important matters, appreciating the progress of humanitarian, remote, prehospital and space medicine was such a privilege.
Had a fantastic day at #WEM19 – highlights including a fascinating case discussion by @AstroSerena on the recent finding of an internal jugular vein thrombosis in flight, planning for medical provisions in space, and challenges related to radiation exposure.
Thank you #WEM19, delegates and fellow stall holders! Another great year. We met so many amazing like-minded people.
Feeling energised and inspired after all the wonder of #WEM19
Best medical conference I’ve ever been to. It has given me the spark I was lacking. Finally, some direction.
THE BEST conference that I have ever been to, lots of amazing speakers and informative workshops. Highly recommend to all.
What a day it has been listening to all the amazing things people do to save lives in extreme conditions…time to start.
Such an inspiring and uplifting weekend at WEM18. Thanks so much to the World Extreme Medicine Conference team for having us and supporting us and organising such a brilliant event. Such a pleasure to meet so many like-minded and enthusiastic and interesting people.
Goodbye Edinburgh! #WEM18 was a phenomenal success, will definitely be making the trip again next year. Thanks so much World Extreme Medicine and all the great people I met this weekend, some of the best in the world at what they do. Hope to run into some of you ‘out there’ this year!
Awesome weekend in Edinburgh with the World Extreme Medicine Conference crew. Already looking forward to next year for the world’s largest gathering of remote medics!
Warning! Attend World Extreme Medicine Conference at your own risk! So much inspiration and so many great speakers lined up – it may change your life.
Back home after what can only be described as one of the most exciting and inspirational events of my life. I’ll be fuelled by the energy from the conference for a long time to come. Big thank you to all the organisers and the phenomenal speakers #WEM18
Humanitarian nursing – Josie Gilday: really important and inspirational – to hear how absolutely essential it is to ensure the mainstay of the workforce are working to the highest possible level, achieved through simple, solid on the job education… and to recognise the impact that one person can have by achieving this.
Polar bear attack presentation – engaging, absorbing, terrifying, well presented.
Dr Farkas was inspiring. I use Pen as a motivator but if that man can lug 120kgs to the North Pole, I can definitely man up.
Naked & Afraid. It was extremely engaging and human factors were something I had never really thought/heard much about beforehand.
Medics Under Fire – really important to start the day with some insights into the realities of the current situation. Humanitarian Nursing – really good to hear about capacity building work which will reap benefits for years to come.
Took a selfie with an astronaut! Also just meeting everyone and hearing the inspiring talks.
Loved Day 1 (2017) and all case reports from Elephants to Polar Bear, Kursk Submarine disaster to other enlightening, detailed scrutinised case reports with elaborate expansion into pathophysiology and pathoanatomy and environment, with survival tactics and innovations to be devised to prevent or damage control excellent!
First attendance – loved all of the sessions and wished I could be there all three days
Fantastic workshop – Caught in a multi casualty terrorist attack. Best and most instructive part of the whole conference.
