In order to best optimize health care, we need the right combination of individuals working on interprofessional health care teams, each joining with the right mindset, in the right places, and at the right times. In this special issue of Military Medicine, Dr. Lara Varpio and her team share their findings investigating the unique dynamics of Military Interprofessional Healthcare Teams. Such research is fundamental to advance excellence of military health care by finding, exploring, and addressing existing gaps in what we currently employ and capitalizing on what we know works well. In doing so, we can improve the effectiveness of our care teams and, as a result, optimize care of our wounded on the battlefield.
