DESCRIPTION

The Medical Simulation Training Center (MSTC) Increment 1 provides realistic medical training to both medical and non-medical Soldiers in the Active, Reserve and National Guard (NG). MSTC provides hands-on instruction on the latest battlefield trauma and critical care techniques based on Army Medical Department approved performance-oriented training curricula. Medical treatment validation exercises simulate the high stress of performing medical interventions in combat. MSTC supports Unit Medical Readiness by validating Combat Medic (military occupational specialty 68W) Emergency Medical Technician biennial recertification requirements and providing combat lifesaver training to non-medical Soldiers.

Increment 2 will focus on improving health care at the first responder, combat medic, Special Operations medic and forward deployed surgical levels to better meet individual commander’s casualty response system needs now and in the Force 2025 operating environment.

BENEFIT TO THE SOLDIER

The MSTC saves Soldiers’ lives through enhanced hands-on medical training, which is provided and taught under realistic battlefield conditions. From this sustainment and validation medical training, first responders are able to provide emergency medical treatment for the three main preventable causes of death on the battlefield (hemorrhage, airway compromise and tension pneumothorax).
