The International World Extreme Medicine Conference and Expo 2013 will host some of the very best speakers from around the world, who are amongst the leading figures in remote extreme medicine fields, including expedition and wilderness, pre-hospital, disaster, and relief medicine. Alongside the daily lecture series will be exhibitions from focused industry leaders, showcasing products and services to meet your extreme medicine needs.

The inaugural European event of the World Extreme Medicine Conference and Expo series was held at the Royal Society of Medicine, central London, from the 15th – 18th April 2012. Following its success, we are delighted to launch the first North American event in October 2013. We are privileged to be holding this in association with Harvard Medical School and the Harvard-Affiliated Fellowship in Disaster Medicine and Emergency Management.

The conference will deliver 4 days of knowledge, insight and innovation in the field of remote medicine including pre-hospital medicine, expedition medicine, disaster medicine and other ‘extreme’ medicine fields. Delivering these messages will be speakers who are the global leaders in remote extreme medicine, ideally placed to provide expert knowledge transfer to you, our delegates.

Over the past ten years the care of casualties has significantly improved. Often this has been driven forward by conflict, the exponential rise in natural disasters and our capacity to respond on an international scale. All of this, concomitant with a growing interest in remote and expedition medicine, triggered the need for an extreme medicine conference.

Developed specifically with physicians, fellows and residents in mind, the World Extreme Medicine Conference and Expo will also be of interest to allied health professionals (nurses, EMTs and paramedics) as well as accessible for medical students  – all with discounted rates.
