College of Remote and Offshore Medicine Foundation

Medical Innovation for Austere Environments

Mount Kilimanjaro

CoROM is an EU registered, not for profit charity that focuses on the practice of healthcare in remote, austere and resource poor environments. We provide membership, academic training and professional registration for the remote practitioner. We focus on training medical professionals who can work in difficult environments and continue to provide evidence based medicine in prolonged field care conditions. 

The College is licensed as a Higher Education Institution (License number: 2018-22) by the National Commission for Further and Higher Education. It is a degree granting institution using the European Credit Transfer Scheme (ECTS). 

The College is based in the European Union with operational locations in Asia, Africa and North America.

The College provides accreditation for medical courses offered by the World Health Organisation.

The College has provided the Tropical Medicine module for the NATO Special Operations Combat Medic course in Pfullendorf, Germany. We also taught on the Prolonged Field Care module.

The College is affiliated with the Mount Kilimanjaro Christian Medical University College located in Moshi, Tanzania. CoROM and KCMUCo jointly accredit our Tropical Medicine courses. Additionally, our graduates gain clinical experience at the KCMC hospital and in remote clinics located throughout northern Tanzania.

What do we specialise in?

Tropical Medicine

We provide clinical research and academic training in Tropical Medicine for medical professionals located worldwide.

CoROM provided the Tropical Medicine module for the NATO Special Operations Combat Medic (NSOCM) course in Pfullendorf, Germany.

Austere Medicine and Prolonged Field Care

The tyranny of distance requires that medical professionals working in Africa, Asia and the Middle East must have the ability to provide best practice medicine for extended periods of time. CoROM focuses on the practice of medicine with limited resources and the ability to improvise whilst providing excellent medical care.

Austere Critical Care

The ability to provide care for critically ill casualties must be available regardless of location and resources. CoROM provides the Critical Care Transport curriculum and expands into the provision of critical care in less than ideal environments.
