About the MHS | Research and Innovation

Calling all military medical care providers and researchers.

MHSRS is just around the corner!

Abstracts for the 2021 Military Health System Research Symposium are due by March 31.  

MHSRS serves as the Department of Defense’s premier scientific meeting to the unique medical needs of the warfighter. The annual symposium provides a collaborative environment for military medical care providers with deployment experience, DOD scientists, academia, international partners, and industry to exchange information on research advancements.

The theme of this year’s meeting is “Channeling the Challenge – The Agility of Military Medical Research,” and conference programming will focus on four topics: Warfighter Medical Readiness; Expeditionary Medicine; Warfighter Performance; Return to Duty.

In addition, a COVID-19 track will be offered by a series of invited presenters.

Before the MHSRS 2020 meeting was cancelled due to the pandemic, more than 1,800 abstracts spanning more than 50 warfighter-related topic areas had been accepted for oral or poster presentations.

The MHSRS website is the best source of information on the 2021 MHSRS Call for Abstracts, and includes the 2021 breakout sessions and instructions on how to submit an abstract.

The 2021 MHSRS Call for Abstracts will not be extended past the closing date. Anyone planning to submit an abstract(s) should submit the appropriate documents by March 31.

While the location and date of the 2021 MHSRS have not been determined yet, the conference is expected to be held in person if conditions permit. Details will be posted on the MHSRS website when available.

Hundreds of military medical researchers, clinicians, and others from all military services attend MHSRS each year. Attendees have the opportunity to attend a wide range of sessions targeting combat casualty care, military operational medicine including psychological health and resilience, clinical and rehabilitative medicine, medical simulation and robotics, and military infectious diseases.

MHSRS also features an awards presentation honoring individual and team research accomplishments.
