Past event: Operational Medicine Symposium

The 5th Annual Operational Medicine Symposium (OpMed) & Technology Showcase is one of the largest and most influential military medical events in North America for senior medical officials, clinicians, government leaders, and solution providers. OpMed offers the unique opportunity to learn, network and engage with military medical professionals in an information driven, networking focused environment.

Each year this foremost symposium provides an opportunity for the services, medical units, industry partners and practitioners to connect and collaborate on the latest innovations and opportunities to advance the practice of medicine in expeditionary environments. Attend for the opportunity to explore prospects and partnerships with operational leaders and key decision makers who are at the forefront of improving warfighter health, strength, and survivability.

Why You Should Attend

Our 5th Annual Operational Medicine Symposium will bring together senior leaders from across the military, government healthcare agencies, academia, and industry to discuss ways to drive medical innovation and advance battlefield care. Operational Medicine 2023 will explore the modernization and implementation of policies, education, training, research & development, and emerging technologies to improve warfighter health, strength, and survivability.  As the United States prepares for a potential battlefield marked by a high-end, mass casualty fight, the Operational Medicine Symposium will explore the best ways to sustain the health and well-being of our warfighters.

The 2023 Symposium boasts three new panel topics on identifying, treating, and preventing military infectious diseases, enhancing human performance, and ensuring sustained combat casualty care at the point of injury and beyond.  Join us at the premier military medical event to hear medical experts, practitioners, and clinicians from across the military medical community discuss how to maximize care for the wounded and injured, including at the point of injury, en route, and in facility. Speakers will address ways to speed up the efficiency, delivery, and effectiveness of combat casualty care, medical evacuations, and advanced field diagnostic systems to ensure a medically ready force and a ready medical force.
