  • About Explora Medicine

    Exploring remote environments, researching hard-to-reach places, and remote filming can be exciting and transformative, but it’s not always easy to achieve. At Explora Medicine we believe it should be accessible for everyone to experience!


    Explora Medicine was born from this belief and from our own experiences on expeditions, humanitarian health care deployments, and remote filming projects. While each experience was different, they all shared a similarity in that people required medical care in resource-poor and remote areas. But it wasn’t just the challenge of providing health care in these extreme environments that was generating interest, it was the potential training opportunities and also the people and the experiences themselves. The stories not told, the pictures not seen, the dialogue not captured. It was a gap that was recognised and a gap that needed to be filled. So we set about a new task. To build something new from the ground up and navigate two growing healthcare opportunities (training and media).


    Explora Medical Media is now an independent media platform that merges three industries (Health Care, Exploration, and Publishing). It brings to life the stories and experiences of health care in extreme environments.


    The Academy of Extreme Environment Medicine is an independent educational platform that offers the only Southern Hemisphere based Clinical fellowship in Extreme Environment Medicine


    We don’t just survive in these environments, our team thrives, so if you have a project requiring remote medical care that you’d like help with please get in touch.
