Course Detail: MMED - Military Medicine: With emphasis on Care of America's Soldiers On and Off the Battlefield
Military medicine dates to antiquity and for centuries has dealt with the attempts to provide care to large numbers of wounded and ill soldiers and civilians in urban, rural and remote environments. This course will discuss in brief some aspects of military medicine from the Napoleonic period and American Civil War, with a more detailed discussion of the care of soldiers in World War II and thereafter. Particular attention will be devoted to the organization of health care for veterans since the second world war and the changing character of military injuries in the recent Middle East wars.

As illness plays a significant part in the story of military medicine, additional time will be spent on some specific diseases, particularly bubonic plaque and smallpox, and on the emerging threats to our military and society by infectious diseases.
