Brad Hulcombe FRNZCUC DiMM
Our Intrepid Medical Conferences, Medical Advisor, and Intrepid Adventurer; Brad’s commitment to continuing medical education goes back many years.
He is a Fellow of the Royal New Zealand College of Urgent Care. He has an International Diploma in Mountain Medicine (UIAA, IKAR-MEDCOM) which he obtained from the University of Heidelberg with his practical training in the mountains of Graubunden and Berner Oberland in Switzerland.
He also holds a Certificate in Avalanche Safety Management Stage 1 from Otago Polytechnic, New Zealand and has completed the Air Zermatt Mountain Emergency Medicine Winter Course in Switzerland. He has also completed papers on Wilderness medicine, Tropical medicine and Travel medicine through the University of Otago.
Brad has been Medical Director of Ski Area Urgent Care Medical Clinics in New Zealand and works in both public Emergency and Private Urgent Care medicine.
A lifelong skier, he has achieved full ski instructor certification in both the United States and Australia in addition to teaching telemark skiing and race coaching. He has also worked in ski fields in Austria and New Zealand. Brad was nominated by his resort in the USA as one of North America’s top 500 ski instructors in 2005. His ability to explain complex topics in a simple manner is undisputed.
These days he just skis for the pure fun of it and enjoys ski touring when he can.
Brad is not just a skier, he is an adventurer. You will find he is just as at home in the mountains and volcanoes of Sumatra as the ones in New Zealand. His close ties with the people of Bukit Lawang were made when he and Sue first visited the area. That friendship developed into Medicine in the Jungle as a way to give back to the local community.
If there is no snow on the ground Brad is chasing waves, coaching Metafit, and dabbling in some Crossfit.
Intrepid Medical Conferences, Medicine in the Mountains and Medicine in the Jungle brings together Brad’s profession and passions.
You can benefit from Brad’s many years of experience working in mountain medicine and teaching skiing all over the world. Join him and the Intrepid Medical Conferences team at the next medical conference in the snow in beautiful Grand Targhee Resort USA.
He is always keen to hit the slopes between lecture sessions and is always looking for someone to join in the fun. So hit him up to make a few turns, if you are lucky he may give you some tips to make your skiing a whole lot easier.
Or if the tropics are more your style join him in Bukit Lawang for Medicine in the Jungle.
