With the increased awareness of global burdens such as humanitarian crises and sudden onset disasters, more than ever there is a need to be delivering healthcare in highly complex and demanding situations.
This unique programme is delivered in partnership between the University of Exeter Medical School and World Extreme Medicine, the world's leading provider of specialist training courses for medics taking their skills into challenging environments.
This is medicine at its best, crossing geographical and professional boundaries.
You will learn the practical skills, knowledge and understanding needed to perform at the highest possible level in the field of extreme medicine.
You will learn with and from your peers. Residentials are a key part of the programme; designed to provide the challenge of learning in an unfamiliar environment and relying on the collaboration and support of the other participants.
The residentials include locations in the UK as well as environment-specific modules located in mountain, jungle and Polar Regions.
This programme is suitable for those from a wide variety of backgrounds. Students have included:
• Medical scientists
• Allied healthcare
• Military medics
You will be working or looking to work in situations of rapid change and uncertainty and you will be looking to demonstrate capabilities that extend beyond clinical competence into areas such as leadership, communications, teamwork, resilience, humanitarian relief, planning and logistics.
The programme's foundations are rooted in the core values of collaboration, challenge, community, impact and rigour, embedded firmly within the University’s mission to make the exceptional happen, by challenging traditional thinking and defying conventional boundaries.
