MILITARY + FEDERAL TRAINING
TACTICAL MEDICAL PRACTITIONER-MIL
Tactical Medical Practitioner (TMP) is one of the most comprehensive Tactical EMS training programs for any EMT or Paramedic, who operates on a tactical team. With the current and emerging threats that face law enforcement today, integration of skilled medical support is critical to mission success. TMP teaches everything from pre-mission planning and medical threat assessment to providing care in austere or high threat environments. Students will learn the many differences of providing care in a tactical setting. Whether it's assessing a sprained ankle or treating a critically injured patient, students leave understanding how to provide care as a member of an integrated tactical team. Students should expect to be challenged mentally and physically.
EXTENDED AUSTERE PROVIDER
Extended Austere Provider is one of the first of its kind. Understanding the environments that some medical providers operate in, we built this course to bridge tactical, wilderness and critical care medicine.
This 5-day immersive educational experience will prepare students to provide care for prolonged periods of time when the next level of care is days away. This course allows students to be exposed to equipment, procedures, and mindsets that may not currently flow through to traditional pre-hospital care providers.
Almost 90% of American service men and women who die from combat wounds do so before they arrive at a medical treatment facility. This figure highlights the importance of the trauma care provided on the battlefield by combat medics, corpsmen, PJs, and even the casualties themselves and their fellow combatants. With respect to the actual care provided by combat medics on the battlefield, however, J. S Maughon noted in his paper in Military Medicine in 1970 that little had changed in the preceding 100 years. In the interval between the publication of Maughon's paper and the United States’ invasion of Afghanistan in 2001, there was also little progress made. The war years, though, have seen many lifesaving advances in battlefield trauma care pioneered by the Joint Trauma System and the Committee on Tactical Combat Casualty Care.
