Course report – Expedition Medicine in Chamonix 16-20 January ’17

What a fabulous week! 120 students came from across the UK, Ireland, Australia, Sweden, Finland and elsewhere to join our flagship winter Chamonix course. Fresh snow the week before the course blanketed the Alps and left us with cold weather, blues skies and perfect piste. 9 instructors ranging from ED consultants, helicopter doctors, a BBC medic, globally experienced anaesthetists, an eye surgeon and polar guides delivered a robust, engaging and inspirational programme. The course evaluations are sprinkled repeatedly with the words “amazing, inspirational, knowledgeable, varied, relevant, great and motivating”. One student (CL) wrote “All round brilliant course. Inspirational and career changing”. Thanks to everyone who came and contributed to another successful WMT week. Dates and details for next year are now live – 22-26 January 2018
