“It is important for Navy Medicine and its leadership to operate at a high level of performance in current and future mission tasking,” said Knittig. “The integration of Navy Medicine across the military operations spectrum allows us to better optimize human well-being, increase resilience and safety, provide more effective health services, and implement effective force health protection protocols.”
“It is important that we train operational medicine leadership to understand the whole battlespace picture and to be able to make decisions based on a correct understanding of capabilities throughout a theater of conflict,” said Force Master Chief Michael Roberts, director of the Hospital Corps. “Theater medical interoperability plays a vital role in the readiness of the Navy and being able to anticipate the changing demands of Navy Medicine is integral to our success at home and abroad.”
The Fleet Medical Training also stressed the importance of seamless logistics in a distributed environment, and how rapidly deployable, modular, and scalable medical options would provide necessary flexibility during joint service, interagency, and DSCA operations.
