Military surgeons are set to teach lessons learned in field hospitals to help doctors in Canada deal with large-scale emergencies, one of the teachers said. Dr. Vivian McAlister of the University of Western Ontario in London served two tours at the Canadian-run military hospital in Kandahar, Afghanistan. He is preparing the course to help civilian doctors deal with catastrophes such as a bus crash or school roof collapse.
