Louis Finelli of the Armed Forces Medical Examiners System speaks at a panel discussion during the 2019 Military Health System Research Symposium.

Abstracts for the 2022 Military Health System Research Symposium are due by Feb. 16, 2022.

MHSRS serves as the Department of Defense's premier scientific meeting for 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 "Optimizing Readiness – The Power of Military Medical Research," and conference programming will focus on four topics: Warfighter Medical Readiness, Expeditionary Medicine, Warfighter Performance, and Return to Duty. Panels will feature topics such as combat casualty care, military operational medicine including psychological health and resilience, clinical and rehabilitative medicine, and military infectious diseases, to include COVID-19.

Before the 2021 symposium was cancelled due to the pandemic, more than 1,800 abstracts spanning more than 60 warfighter-related topic areas had been accepted for oral or poster presentations.

The MHSRS website is the best source of information on the 2022 MHSRS Call for Abstracts, and includes the 2022 breakout sessions and instructions on how to submit an abstract.

The 2022 MHSRS Call for Abstracts will not be extended past the closing date. Anyone planning to submit an abstract(s) must submit the appropriate documents by Feb. 16, 2022.

While the location and date of the 2022 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.
