Marine and Diving Medicine CME - Hawaii



Joe Alcock writes:

I am organizing a continuing medical education course on dive medicine: Marine and Diving Medicine at Jack's Diving Locker in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii this August. Topics will include marine envenomations, DCI and the significance of patent foramen ovale, hyperbaric medicine updates, tech diving, and a variety of other subjects of interest to members of this forum. Our guest faculty includes Michael Strauss MD, director of the baromedical unit at Long Beach Memorial Hospital and co-author of "Diving Science". We also arranged diving charters and will practice simulated diving accidents and first aid on the dive boat. We expect a small group of attendees - about 25 or so - that will permit hands-on teaching and a more interactive approach than most conferences. CME is provided by the University of New Mexico, up to 24 category 1 AMA credits.
