Diyala Province Benefits From Coalition And ISF Forces
The efforts of the joint Iraqi and Coalition forces have worked together to create a professional military Combat medicine team. The assault operations of the joint forces in the Diyala province have worked to demonstrate the quality of the overall combat medicine team.
The members of the medical team from the Iraqi Forces are for the most part in training; the Iraqi Army physicians that have rotated through the program have been well trained for Iraqi medicine, but have marveled at the quality and availability of medical care that has been available through the Coalition.
Several of the different medical care team members have rotated in from stateside in the United States, and are among the tops in their medical professions. Each of the medical care teams consist of three physician assistants, one physician, a mental health care provider, a preventative medicine officer, and several skilled medics.
Together they work to give exceptional medical care even though there are often harsh conditions. A rapid aid station is set up where needed, and it is able to provide immediate and sustained medical care during the early and continued phases of any mission operations.
As the medical care teams are assembled for different missions, the Iraqi Army doctors and medical staff are able to work to learn different treatment techniques and procedures, so that at some point they will be able to function independently.
