World Extreme Medicine

This weekend is the World Extreme Medicine conference in Edinburgh, and YGED are going to be be there in style.

We will have a stall in the main concourse so if you're interested in one of our PHEM/Med Ed/Mtn Med/Global Health clinical fellow jobs, or F3 jobs come for a chat.

We're also going to involved with a number of talks over the 3 day conference so come and learn how we encourage flexible working which allows our doctors to hold down a job whilst also doing expeditions, work in the media and generally have a life.


15:00 - How to get your First Job as an Expedition Medic - Salisbury Suite - Rich Griffiths


14:15 - FlexMed (flexible working in EM) -Salisbury Suite - Sal Ahasn and Rich Griffiths


09:45 - There be tension in the mountains - how small things can have big consequences Boardroom - Rich Griffiths

09:45 - Tales of Retrieval and Telehealth in the Royal Flying Doctor Service - Arvid Schight*

14:15 - How to get your First Job as a Pre-Hospital Medic - Salisbury Suite - Rich Griffiths

Were pretty excited about getting to share our experiences with the delegates and will hopefully learn something from the other talks too!

* OK so Arvid doesn't work for us any more, but he got his RFDS job after doing one of out PHEM clinical fellow posts so we're claiming him as ours!!
