A society for those interested in learning more about military and battlefield medicine, whether with a view to pursue the career or out of academic interest.
Much of medicine has arisen from innovations in the military sphere, including aerospace medicine, the tourniquet, damage control resuscitation and surgery, prehospital and austere medicine, reconstructive surgery and advanced trauma life support algorithms. BL Military Medicine exists to explore this innovative field, from a practical, academic and professional standpoint for those considering it as a career, and those who are just interested!
We plan to host talks from speakers across the military medicine field including all three branches. Being a practical subject, we also plan to provide workshops on battlefield casualty drills (BCD), battlefield advanced trauma life support (BATLS) and damage control surgery. We will also be hosting socials and charitable events.
We are open to sign-ups from any background, whether interested from an academic standpoint, wishing to learn more or as prospective military medics, nurses, physiotherapists, paramedics or combat medical technicians.
