The Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society (UHMS) is an international, non-profit organization serving more than 2,000 members from more than 50 countries.

Our diverse membership ranges from hyperbaric, diving, and wound care physicians, scientists, nurses, technicians, respiratory therapists, and other allied health care professionals who work in the field of hyperbaric, wound care or diving medicine.

The UHMS is the primary source of information for hyperbaric, diving, wound care medicine and physiology worldwide. The Society was founded as the Undersea Medical Society in 1967 but in 1986 changed the name to Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society. The name change reflected the rapidly growing interest in hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

The UHMS' Mission is to:

  • improve the scientific basis of hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
  • provide scientific information to protect the health of sport, military, public safety, and commercial divers.
  • promote sound treatment protocols and standards of practice.
