Remote & Offshore Medicine

DipROM Montage

Providing clinical care in remote locations has its own unique challenges and requires specialist knowledge and skills. This course, delivered online at a distance, provides an opportunity for practising remote health professionals to gain a postgraduate qualification in this emerging specialty.

This flexible online programme is aimed at health professionals working in remote and offshore locations. Students study part time, online using the College's virtual learning environment and can choose to study individual modules as CPD or towards a Certificate or Diploma award all of which are structured at postgraduate level. All teaching is online, with students and faculty internationally based. The Diploma programme includes a residential component towards the end of the students studies.

Programme Aims

The main aim of the programme is to provide health professionals working in remote, and in some instances potentially hazardous locations, the knowledge and skills to operate effectively in this environment using an evidence based approach.

To this end, students taking this programme will expect to:

  • Acquire and apply theoretical knowledge underpinning effective evidence based clinical care in remote environments
  • Explain and incorporate into clinical care the effects of specific physical environments on the health and well-being of remote workers

This programme is aimed at health professionals working in remote and offshore locations internationally. It is intended that students can study part time, online while working.
