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, regionally-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. Specific emphasis on building international healthcare bridges, disaster preparedness, communicable disease prevention, and other current healthcare issues, provide a unique opportunity for the Air Force and Navy Medical Services 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.

To date, DIMO has trained 7,000 students from 124 countries. DIMO's offerings emphasize three major areas of focus: Disaster Response, Force Protection, and BioSecurity.
