The 2012 NOAA/UHMS Physicians Training in Diving Medicine Course has come to a conclusion. Twenty-eight physicians representing both clinical and research institutions worldwide attended this year’s course. Participants included physicians from Brazil, Mexico, Canada and the United States.
The goal of this program is to train physicians in recognizing and treating diving medical emergencies. During the two week course, physicians received instruction in diving and clinical hyperbaric medicine from NDC staff as well as visiting lecturers actively involved in both the research and clinical application of hyperbaric medicine. Students also participated in comprehensive re-compression chamber operations during this course.
