The training focused on the development and mentorship of medical leaders through sharing fleet experiences and lessons learned. Guest speakers covered topics from interagency cooperation and Defense Support to Civil Authority (DSCA), to human factors and sustaining medical readiness during deployment.

“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.
