  • The Seminar

    The 2024 ocean medicine seminar is an experience designed to immerse participants in an offshore sailing environment whilst developing fundamental skills in ocean medicine and marine environments.


    Departing the Southport Yatch Club on the Gold Coast, you will spend two days aboard the vessel.


    The seminar is perfect for the clinician looking to deepen their understanding of the ocean, remote medicine and sailing while enjoying some of the best conditions Australia has to offer.


    You may participate as an experienced sailor looking for an adventure CPD event or as a complete novice dipping your toes into the world of ocean medicine for the first time.


    The seminar provides up to 8 hours of CPD for nurses, paramedic, doctors and allied health care professionals.



    Located on the waterways of the sun-kissed entertainment playground that is the Gold Coast, your days will be spent watching the beautiful sandy beaches go past with ancient rainforests on the hills in the distance.
