tabAbout DIMO 

The Defense Institute for Medical Operations (DIMO) is a dual-service agency comprised of Air Force and Navy personnel committed to providing world class, globally-focused, healthcare education and training to partners around the world. DIMO is a small facilitating agency that utilizes subject matter experts throughout the Department of Defense (DoD) to develop curriculum and teach courses around the world.

DIMO courses bring people of various countries together to help build a common base of understanding among dedicated healthcare professionals. DIMO places specific emphasis on building international healthcare bridges, disaster preparedness, communicable disease prevention, and other current healthcare issues while providing a unique opportunity for the United States to contribute to coalition partnerships.

DIMO facilitates a professional development and exchange among countries, with the goal of creating a shared desire to promote and implement Global Health. The Defense Security Cooperation Agency (DSCA), as DoD's focal point for international education and training, shares this vision and provides sponsorship through International Military Education and Training (IMET) and Humanitarian Assistance programs.
