Is located literally at the bottom of the world and is easily one of the most remote places on the face of the planet. Scarcely touched by humans the frozen land boasts breathtaking scenery. Although there are no native inhabitants of the continent, there are several research centers that are in constant operation. All are occupied year round by scientists and support staff. Expedition members contend with an environment that is constantly changing.

Each group of researchers copes with the isolation from usual medical facilities due to Antarctica's remoteness and extreme climate. Therefore, strategies for dealing with healthcare treatment and delivery in this extreme, isolated environment have by necessity, been honed to guarantee survival. Join this seminar and get the opportunity of exploring solutions to healthcare challenges with colleagues and in-country professionals and enhancing healthcare delivery models and best practices in order to provide quality patient care.

All of these while you enjoy the breathtaking views, explore glacier-carved coves, experience unforgettable closer views of wildlife and much more.
