Further Information

Student Wilderness Medicine Conference 2017

The SWMUK Conference is the largest event in the student Wilderness Medicine calendar, with an anticipated attendance of over 200 delegates and 20 expert speakers. For years, this event has been an opportunity for students who all share a love for medicine in the outdoors to be enchanted by tales of adventure from expedition doctors, enraptured by medical simulations run by the armed forces and get stuck-in with practical workshops by survivalist experts! This year will be no different - and with content delivered by medical professionals who have climbed the highest mountains and sailed the stormiest seas, we promise to deliver you a fantastic array of speakers and workshops, guaranteed to amaze even those of you who survived the Wildest of Trials!

This year's conference will have a special focus on stretching and challenging those more experienced students who have attended these conferences for a number of years - an aim supported by the Faculty of Pre-Hospital Care. With talks designed to get you thinking from an instructor's perspective, to practical workshops that you'll never have the chance to do at Medschool, this isn't one to be missed! In addition, to welcome our new members to the Wilderness Medicine community, we'll be balancing the advanced content with more entry-level talks and workshops designed to broaden your horizons and show you the sheer scope of outdoor and extreme medicine. Take a look at our lineup of exciting speakers here. We promise you it'll be amazing, but don't just take our word for it - head over to the Gallery and check out some of the photos from previous conferences!

You do not need to be a medical student to attend, and all talks will be engaging to other healthcare students keen to learn about medicine in austere environments.

We can't wait to see you all there!
