Convince Your Boss


If you are a trainee, student or simply an allied health professional who needs to convince your boss why you should attend ISMH14. Here’s a small tool we hope you can use to get the necessary financial resources and bring you closer to Maninla. Dr. Marcel Joseph I. Alcaraz,  ISMH14 Chairman along with the honorable committees are looking forward to welcoming you in person at ISMH14.


Dear Sir or Madam,

Why send me to ISMH14?

  • I am the future of maritime medicine, and among the next generation of leaders in the field, and therefore deserve every opportunity to excel.
  • The competence and expertise I acquire now will impact on the quality of patient care in the region for years to come.
  • My goal is to perform cutting-edge clinical and basic science research and advance the highest standards of practice.
  • I am a specialist and my academic merit and progress warrant participation in the trainee audience at this important symposium.


How will I benefit from ISMH 14? 

  • I will stay current on the research, knowledge and experience of over 500 delegates attending ISMH14.
  • My training will take a giant leap forward throughout a wide-ranging four-day scientific programme.
  • I will be among the first to learn of all the significant new developments and scientific advancements in the field of maritime health.
  • The multidisciplinary approach of the symposium will open my mind to all the connections in science and medicine.
  • I will see, hear, and hopefully meet, some of the invited expert speakers, the luminaries in the field whose names I am already very familiar with.
  • What I take away from the symposium will vastly improve my skills in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of maritime health disorders.
  • I deserve every opportunity to prepare myself not only to make an impact on the future of maritime health, but to advance it and be the best that I can be.


I am inspired – and I hope that these very important points inspire you to allow me to attend ISMH14.


Sincerely yours,

Just one of the region’s many highly committed maritime health trainees.
