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

More details are available on the Appraisal page.

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The committee (after consideration on a case by case basis) will usually permit existing referees who are no longer active divers e.g. due to health reasons, to remain as referees providing all other criteria are met.
