NEXT COURSE DATE: October 17-27, 2022
LOCATION: Marriott San Diego La Jolla, CA


Course Description and Goal

The UHMS Physicians Training in Hyperbaric Medicine Course was started in 1977 with financial support from the Department of Energy and the cooperation of the US 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.

FORMS that must be filled out and uploaded on Registration or Emailed to uhms@uhms.org

  • All students must complete the Diver Medical Participant Questionnaire if they wish to participate in diving/pressure-related activities for the upcoming PhysicianTraining in Diving Medicine course.  The purpose of this Medical Questionnaire is to find out if you should be examined by your doctor before participating in recreational diver training. (Click here for Diver Medical Questionnaire form). 

  • All students must complete the SECNEC 5512 form in order to access the Southwest Regional Maintenance Center (SWRMC) Diving Facility that is on the Naval base in San Diego for our field trip.  (Click here for the SECNAV 5512 form)
    • SECNAV 5512 Instructions
      • All sections need to be filled out on this form (full name DOB, full SSN, and signature (w/ date) are essential and cannot be left blank).
      • For foreign nationals, please provide their country and passport number.
      • This form needs to be filled out by each individual requesting access that are 18 years and older that do not have access to the installation.
      • This form gives NBSD permission to run everyone's background.  
      • The completed forms can be submitted in a PDF file in e-mail, or the hard copies can be dropped off by POC to be handed off to NBSD security.
      • If for any reason an individual's background comes back unfavorable, the POC will be notified and the individual will be removed from this list.  
      • Individuals with unfavorable backgrounds can be sponsored (same vehicle) on base by a military affiliated ID card holder.
      • The SECNAV form states "and/or" for providing the full social or driver's license number.  FULL SOCIAL IS REQUIRED.
      • CAC holders from other federal agencies DO NOT need to fill out this form.

CME Hours: For MD/DO/PhD, or equivalent advanced degree, a Certificate of Continuing Medical Education Credits will be issued for those who complete an online evaluation form; MOC credit will be available.

Other course information

  • You will be required to bring a laptop or iPad/tablet. This is needed so you can take the online exam and to follow along with the lectures, as you wish. Paper copies of the exam will be available.
  • Pool activities / Diving gear:  All pool day activities are voluntary and not required.  However, for safety purposes, you must complete this Discover course (information below), or equivalent, prior to diving participation in the pool experience.  If you choose to forgo the course, no worries.  We would welcome your participation on the pool deck learning tender skills, safety protocols, etc.
    • All registrants must bring their dive certification card.
      • If you do not have a dive certification card: We would be happy to arrange a separate "Discover Scuba" course, from an accredited agency, e.g. PADI.  This usually takes about 2 hours of pool time, and would take place in the evening, or perhaps on Saturday in a separate part of the pool.  We have done this before, and the feedback was universally positive.  Please note that this is NOT a certification course, just an introduction to the minimal knowledge needed to be safe in a pool environment.  The cost will not exceed $40 USD, although equipment rental is a nominal extra fee.
    • The pool water temp will be 80-81 (heated).
    • Registrants should bring their own wetsuit (3mm suit will suffice for the pool), mask, snorkel, and fins if they own them. If you do not, we can pre-order the rentals for you.  However, please note, that there will be a nominal fee through Ocean Enterprises that you as the attendee will be responsible for. The fee should be no more than $30.
    • If registrants wish to purchase new gear, OE offers a 20% discount on all five gears.  Ocean Enterprises contact # 858-565-6054.
    • Tanks, BC’s, and regulators are supplied, however, registrants can bring their personal regulators if they wish.
  • You will be provided with a web link to access all the lecture presentations, homework and handouts.
  • You will be given a notebook to take notes (this notebook will have just the lecture topics and objectives).

We are watching the impact of the COVID-19 variants within the US and around the world with great interest and we are regularly monitoring US federal government, California state and San Diego city government COVID-19 websites for changes to travel and group gathering policies/recommendations/restrictions.  


RECOMMENDATIONS FOR ALL LIVE UHMS MEETINGS

We do not know the COVID-19 vaccination status of any of the registrants and we cannot require all attendees to be vaccinated. UHMS leadership is concerned with meeting attendees' health during and after our meeting and are recommending the following actions during any of the live UHMS meetings to help prevent the spread of COVID-19:

  • All attendees wear a protective face covering while inside the meeting venue
  • Practice physical distancing during the meeting
  • Regularly and thoroughly wash hands or use an alcohol-based hand rub

We are excited about our live in-person meeting in more than two years. We want everyone in attendance to enjoy the program and social events. We also want to ensure all attendees are protected from the COVID-19 virus. Following the above prevention steps during the meetings will significantly aid in protecting all.


FACE COVERING AND PHYSICAL DISTANCING RECOMMENDATIONS

  • Get your COVID-19 vaccine: Get your COVID-19 vaccine to protect yourself and others from getting sick. Guidance for fully vaccinated people.
  • Wear a face mask in public: Covering your nose and mouth with a face mask greatly reduces your chances of spreading the virus and also provides some protection for you. Use face coverings if you'll be indoors or around other people where social distancing is difficult to maintain. CDC guidance on cloth face coverings.
  • Wash your hands frequently: Washing your hands with regular soap and water for at least 20 seconds is effective in stopping the spread of COVID-19. If soap and water are unavailable, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer liberally. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands. More handwashing tips.
  • Move at least 6 feet away from others: COVID-19 can spread among people who are in close contact for a prolonged period of time. Avoid public spaces where close contact with others may occur. If you are around other people, stay at least 6 feet away from them. CDC guidance on social distancing.

CALIFORNIA STATE GOVERNMENT COVID INFORMATION:
Last updated June 9, 2022 at 10:44 AM:

Thanks to millions of vaccinations, California’s economy is open. But COVID-19 has not gone away. To safely go about our daily lives, we need to keep taking steps to prevent the spread.

On this page:

What to do now

COVID-19 has not gone away. To safely go about our daily lives, we need to continue:

  • Vaccinations
  • Masking
  • Testing if you feel sick
  • Other measures to keep ourselves and others safe

Do’s and don’ts for daily life

Restaurants, shopping malls, movie theaters, and most everyday places are open. Protect yourself and others by keeping these common-sense safety steps in mind.

Do
  • Get vaccinated
  • Wear a mask where required, in public indoor spaces, and on public transit
  • Follow safety rules for mega-events
  • Get tested if you’re sick
  • Honor mask rules in place at a private business
  • Get tested if required by your workplace
  • Wear a mask when you travel
Don’t
  • Lose your proof of vaccination
  • Think you can’t get the virus or pass it on because you feel well
  • Assume everyone is vaccinated
  • Expect all COVID-19 rules everywhere to be lifted
  • Travel into the U.S. without proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test
  • Travel if you’re sick

Read the CDC’s How to Protect Yourself and Others.

MASKS

California has statewide guidelines for wearing masks. Your local area may have more. Check your area’s COVID-19 website.

Masks are still required for everyone in some places, such as:

  • Public transit
  • Hospitals
  • Long-term care facilities
  • Adult and senior care facilities
  • Correctional facilities
  • Homeless shelters, emergency shelters, and cooling centers
  • Indoors in K-12 schools, childcare, and other youth settings

In other indoor public settings, masks are required for unvaccinated people and recommended for everyone. Examples:

  • Retail
  • Restaurants
  • Theaters
  • Family entertainment centers
  • Meetings
  • State and local government offices that serve the public

Read more on our Masks page and CDPH’s Guidance for the Use of Face Coverings.

TRAVEL

California no longer has a travel advisory in effect. There is no state recommendation to test and quarantine before and after travel.

However, the CDC asks that you do the following:

  • Delay travel until you’re fully vaccinated
  • If you’re not fully vaccinated, but choose to travel, get tested before and after
  • No matter your vaccination status, wear a mask while on public transportation or in a transportation hub

Get tested if you feel sick and avoid traveling if you have or may have COVID-19.

For more info, see CDC travel guidelines, the CDPH travel flyerPDF, and the Travel page.
