Joint Senior Medical Leaders Course

Format: Resident, Exportable

JSMLC is a five-day, CLASSROOM-ONLY course designed to enhance preparation of medical leaders (senior O-5s to O-6s) who have a high probability of being named as a Joint Task Force Surgeon, JTF senior medical leader, or occupy a senior medical planning position in a joint environment. In addition, the course would be valuable for those serving in senior departments, training and preparing forces for joint operations and deployment.

Course Benefits

  • Enhance knowledge of operational medicine, joint policy and doctrine, interagency coordination, major contingency operations, and stability operations in preparation for future roles as JTF Surgeons and their senior staff.
  • Reinforce and expand our warfighting capabilities and promote a discussion of a variety of issues senior leaders will face in an operational medicine setting.
  • The course will be conducted through presentations by senior leadership, discussions of current issues, trends, and lessons learned, along with a table-top exercise. Course participants will leave the course with increased knowledge of joint medical operations, policy and doctrine, and interagency efforts in preparation for future senior medical positions within a Combatant Command.
