The work of maintaining Air Force medical readiness never stops. To deliver medical support in combat theaters, disaster relief settings and other deployed environments, Air Force medics need to train alongside their operational counterparts.

These exercises are a vital opportunity to practice deployable medical skills outside of a normal clinical setting, review medical deployment packages, and integrate into operational units. Many of the training exercises also support community and global health engagement, delivering healthcare to underserved populations and strengthening ties with allies.
