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)
