    Winter Symposium 2023 on Wound & Hyperbaric Medicine
    January 9-11

    For over 50 years the UHMS has been the primary source of information for hyperbaric medicine and physiology worldwide.  This symposium will feature updates in the fields of  wound and hyperbaric medicine. This course has as its goal to provide a quality CME opportunity to update knowledge and skills for wound and hyperbaric medicine for physicians, nurses and technicians, and other clinicians and personnel whose practice includes wound care and  hyperbaric medicine.  This course will feature speakers prominent in their field and will provide time to question and interact with these experts in the friendly confines of Copper Mountain Resort. 

    Copper is located in the perfect mountain setting, only 75 miles west of Denver on Interstate 70. Although we’ve made it hard to leave, we’re incredibly easy to access. Located in Summit County’s playground, Copper is surrounded by 50 miles of recreation pathway through the White River National Forest, Lake Dillon, The Top of the Rockies National Scenic and Historic Byway, The Town of Frisco, and much more. Served by three airports, Copper is a quick drive no matter where you’re coming from.
