Special Operations Medicine Journal

Special operations medicineAn old friend from medical school just turned me on to this amazing resource. You have previously read my thoughts on the Special Operations Forces Medicine Handbook and that I believe it is one of the greatest medical textbooks. Along the same lines, I invite you to visit this website and check out the Journal of Special Operations Medicine.

Clearly, tactical and special operations medicine are coming into their own place as a separate medical discipline. The role of these practitioners involves care of trauma patients, indigenous people and extended care in remote locations, along with many other hats!

This journal is published 4 times per year and should be a lifeline to the Spec-Ops medical provider, from paramedic to doctor. The importance of having their own literature, peer review and method of exchanging information will only help the specialty grow.
