During the first decade of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Military Health System “put more than 27 major game-changing innovations online,” said Dr. Arthur Kellerman, dean of the F. Edward Hebert School of Medicine at Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland. “It’s one of the most extraordinary stories in the history of American medicine.”

Kellerman was moderator of “Out of the Crucible: Lessons from the Transformation of Casualty Care in Iraq and Afghanistan, and a Reset for the Future of Military Medicine.” The session was part of the Military Health System Research Symposium, which runs through Aug. 23 at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center in Kissimmee, Florida.
