At a time where urgent and emergency care faces huge challenges in our own country, war, climate change and a population explosion are creating healthcare challenges on a global scale.
Health care professionals have a huge amount to offer on both fronts, but the chosen pathways must be sustainable. We will assist any aspiring healthcare professional to plan and prepare for wilderness travel, and discuss some of the environmentally specific medical challenges that may be faced in a remote or wilderness setting.
We'll cover global health and provide examples of sustainable projects developed by UK based clinicians, concluding with inspirational stories covering the remote expedition environment.
