Healthcare in Remote and Extreme Environments

Healthcare in Remote and Extreme Environments

Welcome to the Tasmanian School of Medicine’s Healthcare in Remote and Extreme Environments program.

This program is constantly developing and changing, but is focused on providing high quality, relevant and up to date education. Whilst our Certificate, Diploma and Masters program caters exclusively for doctors, nurses and paramedics with a desire for formal study in this exciting and interesting area of healthcare, this site provides open access education for people from all walks of life and from 8 years and up, and allows them to dabble in a more relaxed and informal fashion.

It is free to Sign Up and browse our courses and there is no obligation once signed up to undertake any courses. Some of our courses are free to access and are complete in themselves, requiring you to pay only for a Certificate of Completion, whilst others articulate with other practical elements that we offer.

The first few courses will include the “Humans in Space” MOOC and the knowledge components for the “Remote X-ray operators course”. Planning is underway for a series of modules on Extreme Sports Medicine, and there are a even more ideas brewing!
