Operational Medicine Symposium Jan. 22-23 in San Diego is Open to All U.S. Military Personnel
The 2nd Annual Operational Medicine Symposium, taking place January 22nd-23rd in San Diego, CA will focus on DoD initiatives to enhance military medicine techniques and improve the quality of care of the U.S. nation’s warfighters. This event is hosted by the Defense Strategies Institute (DSI Group), a premier non-partisan Institute designed to assist in advancing the mission critical goals of the United States’ Military and Government. This medical simulation inspired symposium will bring together highly regarded medical professions from all services to discuss the practice of medicine in expeditionary environments from battlefield to installation. It’s not too late to schedule this unique event which conveniently follows IMSH next month!
DSI’s Symposium directly supports DoD priorities by providing a conduit for officials to efficiently reach audiences outside of their respective offices that directly impact their department’s mission success, at no charge to the government, and in an efficient expenditure of time. DSI’s Symposium will provide a forum to address and improve internal and external medical initiatives, meet with and hear from partner organizations, disseminate vital capability requirements to industry, increase visibility within the larger community, and generally support their mission.
The Symposium is open and complimentary to all DoD and Federal employees and is considered an educational and training forum. However, industry and academia members are charged a fee for admission for these key benefits:
- Gain Education & Insight: Walk away with knowledge gained from attending senior level speakers on some of the complex challenges facing battlefield medicine.
- Build Partnerships: The agenda is designed to allow for ample networking opportunities and the ability to discover some the latest technologies and procedures to improve operational medicine.
- Share Influence: Help foster ideas. Share your own insight and knowledge during their interactive sessions. All attendees are encouraged to address their speaker faculty and each other with their questions, comments or ideas.
Defense Strategies Institute’s 2nd Annual Operational Medicine Symposium will bring together senior medical officials, clinicians, government leaders, academia, and solution providers to discuss the policies, strategies, and medical advancements required to improve combat medicine and increase warfighter survivability across a full spectrum of operations.
Due to the significant advances in operational medicine and preventative equipment, the U.S. Nation’s Warfighters have had the highest survival rate in modern history. However, due to the changing operational environment, the DoD must now prepare for conflict against near peer adversaries. In response, the military has made significant investments into medical technology and training to ensure medical personnel are ready and able to treat wounded warfighters in expeditionary settings.
Topics to be Covered at the Ops Medicine Symposium:
- Examining How the Changing Operating Environment Will Impact Operational Medicine
- Update on the Realignment of the Military Health System and the Transition of DHA’s New Responsibilities
- Ensuring Military Medical Forces are Ready and Equipped to Care for the Warfighter in Expeditionary Environments
- Highlighting Current Innovative Initiatives Aimed at Improving Medic Readiness and Capability
- Leveraging Medical R&D Advancements to Ensure the Survivability of the Joint Force
- Human Performance and Its Role in Improving Operational Medicine and Health Care
- Collaborating Between the Services, Industry Solution Providers and Academics to Deliver Quality Medical Care in the Maritime Operational Environment
- Preparing to Administer Prolonged Field Care in Contested Environments
This educational symposium will examine how medical officials actively engage with commercial partners to deliver the most up to date and technologically advanced techniques and equipment to ensure U.S. Warfighters receive the best care possible. Speakers from across the services and Military Health System (MHS) will share perspectives into their critical medical capability and training resource needs as well as their insights into the ways in which emerging technologies and human performance are being leveraged to enhance and support warfighters on the battlefield. Discussions will also center on the changing responsibilities within MHS and the transition of responsibilities from the services to the Defense Health Agency will affect operational medicine and acquisition processes.
DSI’s team specializes in the extensive research and development of their Symposiums’ content and focus areas. We seek to bring together the respected leaders from US military commands, leading research centers, government agencies, and industry technology providers. The event’s non-partisan approach allows us to reach across all services and organizations to bring together a truly holistic group of decision makers and solution providers.
