    Tropical Medicine Seminar

  • The Seminar

    The seminar is an experience designed to safely immerse participants in a jungle environment. You will spend 5 days immersed in the Daintree rainforest, conducting activities from our jungle base camp.


    The seminar aims to introduce participants to the challenge of working in a remote tropical jungle environments and introduce strategies to manage conditions and injuries that can occur. These lessons will be delivered through lectures, case studies, and hands-on safety skill sessions.


    The expedition will be facilitated by experienced clinicians with a passion for tropical environments and combines 12-15 hours of CPD with plenty of free-time activity.


    The seminar is perfect for the clinician looking to deepen their understanding of tropical medicine, whilst enjoying some of the most iconic rainforest on the planet.


    The Daintree Rainforest, also known as the Daintree, is a region on the northeastern coast of Queensland, Australia, about 105 km by road north of the city of Cairns, North Queensland.


    At around 180 million years old, these ancient, self-sustaining tropical forests are nearly 10 million years older than the Amazon of South America, and have witnessed dinosaurs, ice ages, and early humans all come and go.
