Wright Patterson Air Force Base --
The 711th Human Performance Wing's U.S. Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine launched the Medical Interagency Satellite Training (MIST) program recently to improve the amount and quality of training available to the healthcare community.
MIST is a Veterans Health Administration and Department of Defense Joint Incentive Fund program that will significantly improve the amount and quality of training available to the healthcare community.
While the current classes include Building Competency in Health Care, Chronic Disease Self-Management and Partners in Emergency Planning and Response, USAFSAM is now poised to add Aeromedical, Public Health, and Bioenvironmental Engineering topics to the list of classes offered.
Without leaving their workplace, students can receive programming through any of the 2,300 sites that belong to the Government Education and Training Network. Register for classes on the Defense Education and Training Network homepage.
For more information about how to sign up for MIST classes, please contact the MIST Program Director, Alex Autry, at 937-904-5479 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
