College of Remote and Offshore Medicine Foundation
CoROM is a 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. Our focus is training medical professionals who can work in difficult environments and continue to provide evidence based medicine in prolonged field care conditions.
CoROM 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?
We provide clinical research and academic training in Tropical Medicine for medical professionals located worldwide.
CoROM provides the Tropical Medicine module for the NATO Special Operations Combat Medic (NSOCM) course at the International Special Training Centre 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.
Be the best. Learn from the best.
