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 experiences, DOD scientists, academia, international partners, and industry to exchange information on research advancements.

Conference programming will focus on four topics:

  • Warfighter medical readiness
  • Expeditionary medicine
  • Warfighter performance
  • Return to duty

Scientific breakout sessions will feature topics related to combat casualty care and military operational medicine, to include psychological health and resilience, clinical and rehabilitative medicine, and military infectious diseases.

In 2022, 3,709 people attended MHSRS, participating in 63 scientific breakout sessions featuring 446 oral presentations, viewed 1,278 posters, and met with 126 exhibitors.

The MHSRS website is the best source of information on the 2023 MHSRS Call for Abstracts and includes details on the 2023 breakout sessions and instructions on how to submit an abstract.

The 2023 MHSRS Call for Abstracts will not be extended past the closing date. Anyone planning to submit an abstract must submit the appropriate documents by March 3, 2023.
