May’s Continuous Medical Corps Symposium Lecture – Dr. Dale Smith Presenting The History of the Medical Corps

Posted on Updated on

After having our Medical Corps Symposium cancelled numerous times due to COVID, we decided to just transition to a continuous, online symposium where we present one talk each month that you can view live or watch recorded. Here is a message about May’s talk:

Leaders,

Our 2021 Continuous Medical Corps Symposium has kicked off!  Please disseminate the flyer and encourage maximum viewing of Dr. Dale Smith’s lecture on the History of the Navy Medical Corps:

We will be hosting a live Q&A session with Dr. Smith on Microsoft Teams at 1200 EST on 05 May.  The video can be viewed at https://youtu.be/j4wHwJezFKA.  Please encourage maximum participation in the live event as it will be one of the last events for Dr. Smith before he retires.  For any questions, please contact LCDR Jennifer Eng-Kulawy (contact in the global).

Very Respectfully,

Jennifer Eng-Kulawy, MD

I usually stick to career planning topics on this blog, but a reader submitted this interesting article. I had no idea where our corps device came from, and since I didn’t know I’m sure there are others out there who don’t know either. Enjoy reading if this topic intrigues you:
