We welcome applications from appropriately qualified doctors to join the UKDMC list of approved medical referees and access our closed forum discussion group.

The basic requirements include:

  • Recognised medical qualification
  • Practising sport diver with advanced diving qualification
  • Recognised diving medicine education, for example attending courses or diving medicine research publications
  • Appropriate premises, revalidation, GDPR compliance and indemnity cover

If you are interested in more details please contact the UKDMC secretary via the contact us page. Alternatively, email him directly at; david.wilmot1@btopenworld.com

The committee (after consideration on a case by case basis) will usually permit existing referees who are no longer active divers e.g. due to health reasons, to remain as referees providing all other criteria are met.
