Concepts in Military Medicine
Park Nicollet Clinic–St. Louis Park
3800 Park Nicollet Boulevard
St. Louis Park, Minn.
This program is designed for primary care physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners.
Nurses and other members of the care team may also find it beneficial.
Given the ever-changing and evolving field of military medicine, clinicians need a vast range of skills
and competencies to provide the best possible patient care for military personnel here and abroad.
While basic care often is similar for civilian and military populations, combat-related disease and
injury have a less familiar course.
Health professionals must maintain an expansive knowledge base to keep everyday practice for
military personnel current and evidence-based. They need strategies to diagnose and manage the
enormous variety of problems patients present—no matter how common or rare, simple or
complex, acute or chronic.
Many physicians and healthcare professionals often are not familiar with the environments soldiers
experience in combat zones, the health challenges military personnel face, and the resources to
assist them. This conference is for civilian and military medical professionals, including physicians,
physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, mental health professionals and health planners.
The conference will help medical professionals be better prepared to manage the specific
healthcare needs our military personnel face.
This conference will provide a comprehensive review of the latest guidelines, techniques and
recommendations used to evaluate, manage and treat medical conditions commonly seen among
military personnel and address the operational impact these conditions have on military members.
Faculty will discuss and describe practical strategies and procedures to provide primary care
clinicians with the knowledge and skills to confidently treat our military personnel.
Following this course, participants will be able to:
Diagnose and treat common health conditions military personal face, such as asthma and
allergic disease, orthopedic injuries, dental problems, trauma and mental health disorders
Apply strategies to streamline case management of soldiers back home in their community
Discuss and describe roles and responsibilities, medical readiness procedures, deployment
issues, trauma tactic changes and medico-legal intersections in the military
