The Operational Medicine Institute (OMI) provides critical mission support and training to medical personnel, humanitarians, first responders, and disaster response personnel serving on humanity's frontiers. The four pillars of OMI– humanitarian intervention, disaster preparedness and response, operational medical support and unconventional diplomacy–are designed to capture the increasingly interwoven nature of complex humanitarian emergencies.

The OMI is restructing to create a consultancy and operations division. The consultancy group will focus on improving coordination and communication between governmental and non governmental agencies in disaster zones. The operations team will be comprised of vetted knowledge workers and disaster experts from around the globe. We believe that this new framework will allow us to leverage individual contributions to affect larger social change.
