World Extreme Medical Conference #WEM18

Now in its seventh year, World Extreme Medical Conference (#WEM18) is due to take place in Edinburgh, having previously been held at the Royal Society of Medicine in London and Harvard Medical School.

The #WEM18 conference is an exciting multi-disciplinary platform for doctors and medical minds alike to share experiences, best practice, promote cross-disciplinary working and generate new research.

Over three days, the World Extreme Medicine Conference will serve as a springboard for inspiring approaches and new thinking to medical practices. The event attracts over 900 professionals gathering the world’s most respected names in extreme medicine bringing in delegates from diverse backgrounds such as; 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 quite unique and provides excellent networking opportunities.

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, we 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. We host practical sessions on field-proven techniques and ‘hacks’ to inspire and enhance your skills, helping you to become a more effective and highly valued practitioner of remote medicine.
