You probably have a general understanding of how your body works. But do you fully comprehend how all of the intricate functions and systems of the human body work together to keep you healthy? This course will provide that insight. By approaching the study of the body in an organized way, you will be able to connect what you learn about anatomy and physiology to what you already know about your own body.

By taking this course, you will begin to think and speak in the language of the domain while integrating the knowledge you gain about anatomy to support explanations of physiological phenomenon.

Pre-Course for NSOCM students.

Updated for 2021

(Including the latest updates from NAEMT / TCCC AC guidelines.)

The Tactical Combat Casualty Care Train the Trainer course is a two-week long program that will certify medical instructors as CoTCCC and NHSQ-certified instructors. These instructors can then return to their home countries to teach soldiers the TCCC All-Combatants Guidelines.

Trainers will be tested in their knowledge and proficiency of the TCCC Guidelines. During the first week, they will receive instruction on the foundations of teaching the TCCC core curriculum. In teams of 3, they will be responsible for developing and implementing a week-long TCCC course to actual students. 

Trainers will be assessed on their ability to effectively teach theoretical content and demonstrate hands-on practical exercises. Trainers must then demonstrate the ability to design, develop, and supervise complex medical scenarios in austere environments.

If you know that you will be attending TCCC Train the Trainer, please review the ISTC Medical Foundations and Refresher Course in order to study for your entrance exam. Also, please contact mednsocmins02@istc-sof.org to be enrolled in your course.

The Advanced Medical First Responder Course is a three-week long medical course for SOF and SOF-enablers. In this course medics and non-medics will learn the medical skills to treat, stabilize, and prepare battlefield casualties for MEDEVAC with minimal support. 

This entails that students will learn how to implement the Primary Survey during the three phases of Tactical Combat Casualty Care. The training will occur in a mixture of environment and lighting conditions.

Students will also learn how to conduct triage in a mass casualty environment.

If you know that you will be attending AMFR, please review the ISTC Medical Foundations and Refresher Course  and contact mednsocmins02@istc-sof.org to be enrolled in your course.

The Advanced Casualty Sustainment Care Course is a three-week long medical course designed for SOF and SOF-enablers with at least an AMFR (or similar) level of understanding. The focus of the course is to teach medics how to stabilize and sustain casualties in an austere environment (to include hours of limited visibility) with up to 72 hours until MEDEVAC. 

Students will learn how to bridge the gap from the MARCHON Primary Survey and complete a Secondary Survey. They will learn how to develop a nursing care plan, perform nasogastric intubation, suture, perform urinary cauterization and monitor fluid balance, perform intraosseous infusion, conduct neurological examinations, treat sepsis, and calculate extended sedation/anesthesia mixtures. 

These procedures will be conducted in accordance with the Prolonged Field Care guidelines and in real-time.
