Air Force Refresher Course (AFPARC)

17 Feb - 21 Feb, 2020


The Drury Plaza Hotel

San Antonio Riverwalk

105 S. Saint Mary's Street

San Antonio, TX 78205



This year AFPARC is focused on ensuring that those of you who are due/overdue for CMRP requirements will get those skills signed off. If you were selected to come centrally funded to AFPARC, you will have a schedule already set for you for the 5 days, to include lectures and skills workshops. These workshops will include: 4N0 procedure lab, Battlefield Skills, and Acute Musculoskeletal (MSK)/Orthopedic management skills lab. 

For those of you who will be joining us as unit funded or personally funded, we have great lectures and other skills workshops you can sign up for (please see schedule link below); however, you will not be able to sign up for the 4N0 procedures, Battlefield skills, or Acute MSK/Ortho management skills labs as there is limited room and this is an Air Force level requirement for all PAs to attend these workshops at least every three years. 

If you're coming due for these skills labs, you will likely be centrally funded to attend future AFPARC events to ensure you achieve those lectures before becoming overdue.

Please see schedule of events HERE.
