Good morning everyone,

As we start the new year, I want to share the 2023 Bushmaster dates with you for long range planning. Reminder – travel is on the day prior to starting and is funded by USU. I will send out a call for volunteers in late Spring and ask you to submit your availability on a Google Form.

Iteration 1: 7-11 OCT 2023
Iteration 2: 16-20 OCT 2023

For anyone located in the National Capital Region, we are recruiting additional instructors for our local courses. Please let me know if you would like more information on any of these other Department of Military and Emergency Medicine educational activities:

Point of Care Ultrasound (monthly)
