Remote and expedition medicine in practice
21 – 26 January 2024
Join Endeavour’s expert faculty in the stunning French Alps of Morzine for a practical and immersive approach to working in remote environments.
This course takes a holistic approach to expedition medicine through being entirely scenario and workshop based. You will work through real life cases examining how medical care integrates with human factors and leadership when coordinating care in remote or extreme locations.
Our highly experienced faculty, all with years of expedition and medical experience will facilitate open discussions around core topics and the nuances of being an expedition medic. We also enjoy learning from you, so please bring your stories to the table on this course.
The beautiful location of Morzine has plenty to offer: skiing, hiking, cross country skiing, randonnee, ice rinks, alpine cafes and restaurants to suit all outdoor enthusiasts.
