PENA GALBAN, Liuba; MENENDEZ LOPEZ, José Rogelio; VENTURA VELAZQUEZ, René Esteban  and  CASAS RODRIGUEZ, Ludmila. Training of military psychiatrists for contemporary warfare. Rev Cub Med Mil [online]. 2014, vol.43, n.1, pp.134-137. ISSN 0138-6557.

An analysis is provided of the characteristics of military psychiatry actions in disaster and war situations. Considering the features of these exceptional situations and the preparation they require, the military psychiatrist should be trained to attend to a large number of patients in a short time. Since such training is not included in peace time curricula, it is necessary to take advantage of disaster scenarios, either natural or not, to develop those abilities.

Keywords : military psychiatrist; disaster; war; abilities.
