The following information is for UHMS meeting and course registrants and attendees
The Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS) is providing the following information about the status of UHMS live course programming as it relates to COVID-19. The UHMS is assessing potential risks to attendees of UHMS live programming on a real-time basis based on community outbreak levels and the CDC recommendations for community events, including meetings at https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/mass-gatherings-ready-for-covid-19.html.
The UHMS position on the continuation, delay or cancelation of meetings and courses, will be commensurate with the published CDC level of community outbreak.

The UHMS Physicians Training in Diving Medicine Course was started in 1977 with financial support from the Department of Energy and the cooperation of the U.S. Navy. Further influence has been based on internationally accepted training objectives that were agreed upon by the Diving Medical Advisory Committee (DMAC), the European Diving Technology Committee (EDTC), and the European Committee for Hyperbaric Medicine (ECHM). This course is primarily designed for those who possess an MD, DO, or equivalent degree; however those non-physicians who will use the training in their geographic areas to enhance the safety and efficiency of diving operations will also find the course of value.
The goal of this course is to train physicians in recognizing and treating diving medical emergencies. Course educational methodology includes lectures, case presentations, video clips, printed support materials, practical exercises, and both formal and informal question and answer sessions with the faculty.
In addition to lectures on the physiology and medicine of diving, the course will include practical exposure to different types of diving equipment, recompression chambers and support systems and situational/simulation training.
Applicants for the course should possess an MD, DO, or equivalent degree. Preference will be given to those applicants who will use the training in their geographic areas to enhance the safety and efficiency of diving operations.
The applicant must pass a diving physical examination if they wish to participate in diving/pressure-related activities. The purpose of this Medical Questionnaire is to find out if you should be examined by your doctor before participating in recreational diver training. Please be sure to fill out the Medical Questionnaire form (Click here for form), which can also be found on the registration page.
