As of 2/20/2017–Here is the latest from Col Frank Yang and the planning committee
Colleagues: plans are now underway for the 2017 Flight Surgeon Educational Program. Here is some of the email traffic so you will know who is working so hard on your behalf. Kudos to them all. (If any of you have suggestions or an interest in participation, please let one of the planners know. Thanks–WWP)
I started thinking about 2017 MRU planning recently, and here you are, already a bunch of steps out of the gate. Great and thank you for starting the conversation.
I suggest a tele-con to bring multiple planners onto a common phone line and at least lay the ground work? This would be our 1st of many t-cons.
In 2016, AANGFS elected and designated separate people for “program/class” planning and CME, in addition to other offices. And they are:
Capt. Tomas Chavez: Asst Web Master,
And, of course, Col. Bill Pond, appearing as himself in one of his roles, all splendid, as Master Web Master.
We can begin to discuss SWAT’s very good questions and other questions as well.

Col Yang/BG Wyrick,
Emailing you as the President and VP of the AANGFS. I believe the time is here again to work on the RSV training for the AANGFS. NGB/SG is proposing this be done the weekend before the previously called “Readiness Frontier Lite” event and have secured a room. The date of the training event is 26 June – 30 June in Little Rock, AR and Readiness Frontiers Lite has been renamed to Medical Readiness University (MRU). If we want to stay true to the timing history, the RSV day would be on Saturday/Sun, 24-25 June, 2017.
Questions for you:
1. Is this acceptable and should we continue to press that the 24-25 June
will be the RSV training?
2. Do you want me to take lead, keeping you both informed and in the loop, since I am here in the office?
3. Is there any deviation that you would like to do? I would like to make one – instead of straight up NARSUMs for that section, I think we should do some Line of Duty training as it will encompass NARSUM’s (including the new requirements that are being created in working group I am part of)
4. Would you like me to contact the person we worked with last year for CME now and figure out a timeline for you to publicize when slides are needed for presenters (assuming #1 question answer is yes) as well as let Col Pond know for the AANGFS website, for best planning/advanced notice of the docs?
Folks, for your SA, the information below is what the program looked like last year:
Continuing Medical Education Credit (CME) & Telecon Info
Instructions below–thanks Col Bradley for the work on CME!
The lectures for 2016 are located under the Readiness Skills Verification Program tab with the title starting 2016 07 16 and located first under each RSV topic. (I will post the presentations and updates as soon as they are made available–WWP)
Remember, Blues for Monday, and flight suits for Saturday, Tuesday and Wednesday
Great training and camaraderie coming:
