Operation Southern Partner

Lt. Col. Alger Rodó, chief of operative medicine with the Chilean Air Force, poses with members of the Defense Institute for Medical Operations during the graduation ceremony from the multi-national disaster response course on 4 Nov. The Defense Institute for Medical Operations course is part of Operation Southern Partner; an AFSOUTH-led event aimed at providing intensive, periodic subject matter exchanges with partner nations in the U.S. Southern Command area of focus. The all-new program features more than 70 U.S. Air Force subject matter experts from about 25 career fields working alongside partner nation military members in similar career specialties during week-long exchanges. The next morning, Colonel Rodó led a tour of his hospital’s emergency room for U.S. Air Force doctors. Later, Air Force doctors were able to sit in on a lecture where Chilean doctors evaluated different courses of action to treat patients. (Photo by Capt. Nathan D. Broshear)
