Nordic training in disaster medicine



General Description

Disasters can strike anywhere and affect anyone. We want to work for a society and a medical profession that knows how to tackle a disastrous event in a nordic setting.
In our medical curriculum in Sweden there is very little education about disaster medicine and we will have this training to spark interest and hopefully the participants will spread the knowledge and passion we have for it.

IFMSA-Sweden will arrange a training for nordic IFMSA-students.
We want to prepare our participants on how to manage situations out of the ordinary in Sweden and the Nordic countries. Participants will learn how Sweden’s disaster management operates, who does what – and what we should do. We will think about and discuss which measures could be taken to reduce the risk for disasters, and increase the knowledge about this within the society.
