The Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society  (UHMS) is an international, non-profit organization serving over 2,500 members from more than 50 countries.  Most UHMS members are diving or hyperbaric scientists and physicians. The Associate members are composed of nurses, technicians, respiratory therapists and others who work in the field of diving and hyperbaric medicine. 

The Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS) is the primary source of information for diving and hyperbaric medicine  physiology worldwide.  It was founded as the Undersea Medical Society in 1967 but in 1986 changed the name to Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society.  The name change reflects the rapidly growing interest in hyperbaric oxygen physiology and therapy.  The purpose of the UHMS is to provide scientific information to protect the  health of sport, military and commercial divers and to improve the scientific basis of hyperbaric oxygen therapy, promote sound treatment protocols and standards of practice and provide CME accreditation. For more information about membership and services, contact the UHMS, 21 West Colony Place, Suite 280, Durham, NC 27705-5590 (www.uhms.org).

The continuing medical education mission of the Pacific Chapter of the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society is to develop and promote programs that improve the scientific knowledge of physicians and other allied health professionals, in the Pacific Coast and Western regions of the United States and Canada, in matters related to undersea and hyperbaric environments and appropriate applications of hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
