The Medical Simulation Training Center (MSTC) officially opened on May 31, 2006 and is the first of 20 facilities of its kind established Army-wide that addresses the requirement of providing sustainment and enhancement training for the Military Occupation Specialty of Combat Medic (68W series) in a performance-oriented setting

The MSTC provides realistic, state-of-the-art training to aid the students in gaining proficiency in treating all areas of trauma and basic medical treatments. Students will receive this training through classroom instruction, basic skills training and the use of trauma and medical lane training. The functional skills developed during course work are demonstrated during a final simulated battlefield environment, exposing students to different scenarios and situations that they could possibly experience in a combat situation.

The MSTC serves as the standardized training platform for conducting Combat Medic (68W series) sustainment training on Joint Base Lewis-McChord. Additionally, training offered at the MSTC extends to non-medical personnel in the form of Combat Life Saver (CLS) and TC3 training for those units that lack organic medical personnel assigned. Medical training is also provided for local National Guard, Reserve Component, Coast Guard, Navy, Air Force, and other State, Local and Federal Agencies on an as needed/as available basis.


The MSTC offers the following courses:



M.E.D.I.C. Tables I – VIII: Offered upon request to assist the commands with maintaining the minimum skills required for sustainment of certification as an Army medic & technician (Military Occupation Specialty 68W). Our staff will assist in the setup and validation upon request of the command, or fill the role as the host facility.

Tier 2 Combat Lifesaver (CLS): The Combat Lifesaver (CLS) program is a 5-day course designed for non-medical personnel to become familiar with treating patients using the Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TC3) principles. The primary focus in the classroom and on practical application is treatment for severe bleeding, performing a needle chest decompression for a Tension Pneumothorax and airway management with the use of a Nasopharyngeal (NPA.) During the 3-day period the student will complete the basic skills and graduate to a level of competence that will allow them not only to start the process of battlefield injury mitigation, but also bridge the gap between self-aid/buddy-aid and the Combat Medic. These skills will be transferable for those providing additional basic assistance to the Combat Medic as needed. TC3-CLS meets the tier 2 DODi 1322.24 requirement for TC3 training.

Delayed Evacuation Casualty Management (DECM): This 5-day course covers didactic and hands on practical exercises covering lethal triad, critical care casualty monitoring, fresh whole blood administration, ventilator management, and wound care techniques. Medical providers will learn about the walking blood bank program and learn about casualty sustainment considerations when evacuation is delayed in a near peer environment. DECM does not currently award Continuing Education Units (CEUs) or a certificate.

Basic Life Support CPR w/ AED (BLS): This is a certified Army Red Cross 8 hour course, which certifies the student in Basic Life Support skills to include the use of an Automatic External Defibrillator (AED). This course satisfies the requirements for all CPR skills needed.

Tier 3 Tactical Combat Casualty Care for All Medical Providers (TC3-MP): A 2-day course for individuals with EMT or higher certifications. The two day course will consists of didactic and hands on skills training that will refresh and standardize the standard of care required from care under fire through tactical evacuation. Skills reviewed are the standard skillset of a 68W Combat Medic. Students will be required to pass a multiple choice written test and three immersive scenario trauma lanes. TC3-MP meets the tier 3 DODi 1322.24 requirement for TC3 training. Attendees must have an EMT or higher certification and will gain an NAEMT TC3 certification.

Casualty Response Training for Leaders (CRTL): This 1-day course focuses on training leaders in the development of battle drills for executing casualty response and includes contingency planning, scene security, casualty collection point (CCP) establishment, aid and litter team control, sensitive item collection, personnel accountability, helicopter landing zone establishment, and nine-line medical evacuation (MEDEVAC) request submission. During the course, leaders are exposed to scenarios commonly encountered in theatre (e.g., IED blast, downed aircraft, and casualties during a raid).


The MSTC offers the following courses by request:



Tier 1 Tactical Combat Casualty Care for All Service Members (TC3-ASM): This 1-day course for all service members provides required training for all combatants in TC3. Advances in TC3 have dramatically increased casualty survival. This is especially true when all members of combat units – not just medics - are trained in TC3. TC3-AC meets the tier 1 DODi 1322.24 requirement for TC3 training.

Tactical Combat Casualty Care for All Combatants (TC3-AC): This 2-day course for all combatants provides required training for all combatants in TC3. Advances in TC3 have dramatically increased casualty survival. This is especially true when all members of combat units – not just medics - are trained in TC3.

Combat Lifesaver (CLS): The Combat Lifesaver (CLS) program is a 3-day course designed for non-medical personnel to become familiar with treating patients using the Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TC3) principles. The primary focus in the classroom and on practical application is treatment for severe bleeding, performing a needle chest decompression for a Tension Pneumothorax and airway management with the use of a Nasopharyngeal (NPA.) During the 3-day period the student will complete the basic skills and graduate to a level of competence that will allow them not only to start the process of battlefield injury mitigation, but also bridge the gap between self-aid/buddy-aid and the Combat Medic. These skills will be transferable for those providing additional basic assistance to the Combat Medic as needed.

Mission Essential Task List (METL) individual tasks: Identify individual METL tasks that will benefit from the simulated environment provided at the MSTC. 4 simulation rooms, The MSTC can facilitate medical tasks difficult to teach in your area of operation or introduce casualty response scenarios into an individual task.

Mission Essential Task List (METL) collective tasks: Identify collective METL tasks that will benefit from the simulated environment provided at the MSTC. The MSTC can facilitate medical tasks difficult to teach in your area of operation or introduce casualty response scenarios into a collective task.
