Anderson JE, David EA, Loge HB, Farmer DL, Galante JM. A Model for Military-Civilian Collaboration in Academic Surgery Beyond Trauma Care. JAMA Surg. 2017;152(9):891–893. doi:10.1001/jamasurg.2017.1575
Providing comprehensive surgical training and sustaining medical readiness of military surgeons remains challenging, especially during peacetime. We summarize a military-civilian partnership that extends beyond trauma.
We evaluated the collaboration between surgeons of the David Grant US Air Force (USAF) Medical Center (DGMC) at Travis Air Force Base in Fairfield, California, and the University of California, Davis (UCD) Medical Center. The UCD facility is the only level I trauma center in Sacramento, California, and is the main tertiary care center in Northern California, serving a catchment of 2.5 million people. Successes and challenges in the areas of graduate medical education and faculty engagement in research and clinical duties were identified. This study was exempt from the UCD institutional review board, as it was determined not to be research.
