Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine Society

Have you heard of the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine Society? One physician registered on Sermo asked this question: "Why isn't Hyperbaric Medicine a recognized specialty on SERMO?"
Although I practice as a primary care internist, I am a former nuclear trained U. S. Navy Medical Officer who was qualified in Submarine and Diving Medicine .

I am a member of the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine Society and my practice has included treatment of decompression sickness in divers, supervision of hypberbaric oxygen therapy and physical examinations to determine medical qualification for U. S. Submarine Service and fitness to dive .

I am interested in hyperbaric medicine, but can not choose it as a secondary specialty or a special interest in a SERMO profile.
The Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine Society is not your "typical"  medical society. In fact, it may be considered non-traditional by many physicians. If you're a medical student and you're thinking about an alternative medical career, perhaps you should research careers in Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine.  Learn more here: http://www.uhms.org/
