Airmen of the Air Force Medical Service answer a higher call. Since 1949, no matter the location or the mission, Air Force Medics save as many lives as possible. From the Korean peninsula to the Middle East, from humanitarian assistance to armed conflict, Air Force medics risk themselves to save others. For seven decades, Airmen have been disruptive innovators, improving the civilian and military health systems and redefining what is possible in battlefield and aeromedical medicine. Air Force Medicine - 70 years of Trusted Care, Anywhere.
Outside a small clinic in the mountains of Honduras, dozens of people wait patiently for their chance to see a doctor. In a remote area like this, medical care can be hard to come by. Families from all over the mountain have come in search of relief from pain and disease.
It is vital for medical Airmen to continuously maintain and improve their skills. To access more training opportunities, military surgeons are looking to virtual training platforms. The Air Force is working with sister services to study a virtual training platform called Crowd-Sourced Assessment of Technical Skills, or C-SATS. C-SATS provides specialized training for surgeons to further improve their specialized skills.
Larger, faster and flexible – a flying ICU. Since joining the U.S. Air Force fleet in 1993, the C-17 Globemaster III has significantly expanded aeromedical evacuation capabilities. In addition to its transport and other numerous mission sets, the C-17 converts to provide aeromedical evacuation to patients in a broad variety of conditions. The aircraft has played critical roles in various contingencies, bringing warfighters to higher levels of care, bringing patients home to the U.S., and aiding in humanitarian efforts to save the lives of those impacted by natural disasters.
