The World Academy for Endurance Medicine is committed to upskilling healthcare professionals overseeing medical support at World Athletics Label Road Races and other mass-participation endurance events around the world with its Race Emergency Medicine Course (REMC).
This course provides participants with the opportunity to improve their knowledge and race-day medical management skills with lectures, skill-building activities, and race-day observation.
The REMC trains healthcare professionals to deliver quality medical leadership at mass-participation endurance events by introducing participants to standardised medical concepts, procedures, and protocols in race medicine. The course is divided into two components:
The course is open to race medical directors, as well as other healthcare professionals. The REMC is limited to 30 participants to achieve the course’s learning objectives with small-group collaboration; because the REMC certification is required for all race medical directors of World Athletics Label Road Races*, they are given priority attendance. Additional participation is based on availability and is offered on a first-come first-served basis.
*Medical Directors of Label Road Races will be required to participate in at least one Race Emergency Medicine Course every three years as part of their continuing medical education. Race organisers will be required to include the name of the medical director who holds participation certificate(s) when applying for a World Athletics Label.
