Interspecies Medical Exchange Program


The Interspecies Medical Exchange (IME) was an interstellar program initiated by the Vulcan High Command in the late 2130s. 

The program involved several Alpha and Beta Quadrant governments, including those of Earth, Vulcan, Denobula, and Mazar. This medical exchange program allowed doctors from each planet to volunteer their services on alien worlds with the intent to better their understanding of xenobiology. 

This proud tradition has been continued to this day and you have been lucky enough to have been selected to represent Starfleet Medical.
