About MHSSPACS

The 鶹ý (ACS) and the U.S. Department of Defense Military Health System (MHS) formed the Military Health System Strategic Partnership 鶹ý (MHSSPACS) to improve educational opportunities, systems-based practices, and research capabilities in surgery. The strategic partnership—launched December 2014—will facilitate collaboration and the exchange of information between 鶹ýand MHS to advance high-quality, cost-effective care for surgical patients.

Military Clinical Readiness Curriculum

The Military Clinical Readiness Curriculum is designed for a general surgeon deployed to a relatively far forward battlefield base who must be capable of providing initial trauma resuscitation and life- and limb-saving surgical procedures for those injured in combat.

Surgical Quality Consortium

February 14-15, 2023 | Chicago, IL

The Military Health System Strategic Partnership recently hosted the Military Health System (MHS) Surgical Quality Consortium (SQC) Meeting on February 14-15 in Chicago. This is the first time the group has met in person since 2019 and hosted 47 in-person and 37 virtual registrants. The goal of the meeting was to support the ongoing development and member needs of the MHS SQC. The SQC was chartered to provide guidance and governance on issues related to surgical quality and serves as an advocating body over the Department of Defense National Surgical Quality Improvement Project (DOD-NSQIP) collaborative to include Pediatric NSQIP.
