EUBS RESEARCH AND COURSES PAGE

Over the past few years, it has become evident that research and education in Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine is of paramount importance, not only to increase our scientific knowledge, but also to increase the acceptance of the therapeutic modality "hyperbaric oxygenation" in this era of EBM.
Therefore, on this page, you will find announcements of ongoing (enrolling participating centers) research projects, as well as courses and events.
If you would like to contribute (= advertise your research or course or event), this is free of charge (of course) - just send a mail to the Webmaster with the useful information.

European Meetings and Courses

Scott Haldane Foundation, The Netherlands

The Scott Haldane Foundation (SHF) is an international institute for the training and education of diving medical examiners and diving medicine physicians. Founded in 1976 to spread diving medical know-how among physicians and to provide support for those wishing to attend international diving medical meetings, SHF also published a booklet about diving medicine and issued a magazine for a short period of time.
As from 2003, started with the development of regular courses in diving and hyperbaric medicine (DHM). In the past decade, over 2,000 physicians have participated in SHF courses. Though SHF’s origins lie in The Netherlands, courses have been run in more than 20 countries, from Honduras to Indonesia to Tanzania to Belgium. Among SHF Faculty are world-renowned specialists in diving medicine, from Australasia, USA and Europe.
The SHF courses also laid the fundamentals for a certification system for diving medical examiners and diving physicians in The Netherlands. Since 2011, SHF has been certified by the European College of Baromedicine as internationally accredited DHM course provider. All courses meet the EDTC/ECHM guidelines, and lead to certification as Medical Examiner of Divers (Level I) or Diving Medicine Physician (DMP) (Level IId). All programmes have a modular structure, allowing students to attain certification in several steps. Thanks to this modular design and the variation in how topics are presented, all courses also meet national (Dutch and Belgian) CME requirements.
Further to diving medicine courses, SHF also organizes internships for the DMP certification: the first in hyperbaric medicine and the second focusing on the various diving systems used in both recreational and professional diving. SHF is also involved in the organisation of international conferences in diving and hyperbaric medicine (TriContinental Meeting EUBS/SPUMS/SAUHMA, Ultrasound Course).
