Remote Medical Training

Expedition Medical Skills are not learnt in lecture theatres.  They are acquired through real-life experience, outside, in the field, in the jungle or on the mountainside.  Our UK and international courses are ideal for practicing Healthcare Professionals looking for field experience, Students on Medical Elective or Expedition Leaders looking to up-skill and kick-start your career in remote medicine.  As in the real-world, we practice as a multi-disciplinary team, ensuring that everyone steps outside their comfort zone.  Fully immerse yourself in the environment of your choosing; perfect your expedition skills whilst treating the many simulated casualties that pop up along the way... and of course have a lot of fun in the process.
