Operational Medicine Symposia (OPMED)
In an effort to provide timely medical training and Continuing Medical Education (CME) credit to operational personnel, SWMI sponsors these seminars. Topics of current operational interest are presented by operationally experienced subject matter experts and attendance is open to Hospital Corpsmen, Physicians, Nurses, Physician-Assistants, and Medical Service Corps Officers. The goal is to get medical education to the deck-plates by providing CME hours in a venue that is close to the waterfront. Topics have included mass casualty incidents at sea and with the Marines, including the bombing of the USS COLE, Orthopedic and Maxillofacial trauma, Burns, Bioterrorism, and Urban Warfare.
