Operation BUSHMASTER 2020 Cancelled

Posted on Updated on

I am the bearer of bad news…. Operation Bushmaster will be postponed and will now occur in the Spring of 2021 (dates TBD).  We were faced with the challenge of bringing together nearly 700 faculty/staff/students, during a pandemic, who will come from around the world.  As we continued to discuss ways to mitigate disease spread, we realized that we would have to dilute the experience and lose the educational benefits that make Bushmaster unique and formative in molding military medical leaders.
We are working with the Dean’s office to determine new dates for the Military Contingency Medicine course (classroom train up) and the field portion of Operation Bushmaster.  When I have firm dates, I will send another email and open a new faculty application.  I hope that many of you will still be able to come and support our students.
Thank you for your continued enthusiasm.  I look forward to working with you all in the Spring.
Best wishes,

Leslie Vojta, MD, FACEP
