Military Medical Humanitarian Assistance Course - Portsmouth, VA
This two-day course focuses on understanding the unique health environment and recognizing and managing those conditions consistently associated with high mortality among the most vulnerable populations (primarily children) in these settings: diarrhea and dehydration, malnutrition, epidemic measles, malaria and respiratory infections. Course scenarios focus on the role that US military medical assets would likely play as early responders to a humanitarian emergency with limited medical resources.
Military primary care providers expected to encounter civilian populations through Global Health Engagement activities (e.g. General Medical Officers, Family Practitioners, Pediatricians, Emergency Medicine Providers, Nurse Practitioners, Physicians Assistants, and Trainees entering these fields)
