FAWM Lecture Series

This programme is modelled on the 12 compulsory domains of the Fellowship in Wilderness Medicine (see www.wms.org/fawm for details) and will carry FAWM credits and CPD accreditation.  Each session will include a lecture, either from a Wild Medix team member or guest speaker, a case-based discussion and an electronic quiz with time for feedback and discussion. We've got some great speakers lined up for the year!

The lectures will be held at our venue in Montague Gardens, Cape Town.
