DAN's Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine courses are designed primarily for physicians. Emergency medical personnel, paramedics, nurses and professionals with interest in dive medicine will also find the courses of value.
Any DAN educational activity that is primarily planned for physicians will request Category 1 credit from the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME). CME programs are jointly sponsored with the Wilderness Medical Society. Certificates of attendance will be provided at all CME activities.
The purpose of DAN's physician referral network is to refer scuba divers or potential scuba divers to doctors knowledgeable and trained in dive medicine. Inclusion in the physician referral database requires completion of an introductory course in dive medicine and a special form. DAN's Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine course would fulfill that course requirement.
DAN typically offers a Diving and Hyperbaric Medicine course twice a year — once in the spring and once in late summer or early fall. Optional diving is available with the DAN group. Courses are posted on the events calendar on the DAN website.
DAN does not offer certification in CME activities. DAN Education offers certification in its training courses.
