WMS Dive Medicine Conference
Cancun, Mexico
November 4-7, 2015

If you have an interest in recreational diving and the marine environment – or if you want to begin to cultivate that interest – you will want to attend this program. It features the high quality of education that you have come to expect at all WMS meetings and in addition, there is ample time to enjoy the ocean wilderness and the area around Cancun. On each of the days of the CME program, dives are scheduled. The learning environment moves from the classroom to the boat deck where you will interact with faculty and be attending informal, on-board discussions. In the classroom, you will learn science, medicine and clinical applications and then be awed by the incredible beauty of this spectacular area.
