Welcome to the 65th Medical Brigade 38th Parallel Operational Medicine in Korea. We have partnered with our Korean colleagues, distinguished visitors, and honored guests from United States Forces Korea (USFK), and the United States to provide training on operational medicine, humanitarian assistance during contingency operations, chemical and biological threat and treatment, and United States and Republic of Korea (ROK) operational plans in the peninsula. There is also ample opportunity to earn CMEs and CEUs
This year's theme is "Operational Medicine in Korea". It reflects the tremendous responsibility of providing world-class health care to our Soldiers, Family Members, and Retirees for more than half a century in the strongest partnership in the world. The goal of this training is to maintain medical readiness in an operational environment.
The 38th Parallel Medical Society was formed in 1951 by a group of medical officers serving with the 3rd Infantry Division in Korea. The organization was formed to provide a forum to discuss current medical advances and medical-military issues unique to the Korean Peninsula.
