Winter Park, FL— April 21, 2022. The U.S. Army Medical Center of Excellence (MEDCoE)/Department of Operational Medicine (DoOM) has again awarded SIMETRI Inc. a 3-year contract to provide physician assistant instructional services and personnel for its Tactical Combat Medical Care Course (TCMC). SIMETRI instructors will continue to design and implement point-of-injury, combat medical readiness training curricula for military medical professionals at Fort Sam Houston, Texas.
“We cherish the work that we do at the TCMC for MEDCoE, as well as the people that do the work,” said Brian Holmes, SIMETRI vice president of business development. “As the incumbent, it can be hard to quantify the quality and value of instructional services that you’ve been providing to the customer unless you can tie it to something tangible. Fortunately, the TCMC student feedback speaks volumes about our physician assistants’ abilities to train both the concepts as well as the psychomotor or movement-based training. We’re very proud of our instructors and our budding relationship with our team member, the Tier 1 Group.”
This marks SIMETRI’s second consecutive 3-year contract for TCMC, demonstrating the company’s reliability in implementing training curricula vital to combat medics’ effectiveness at administering care when deployed. The program enhances trainee critical care capabilities by simulating how life-saving medical procedures must be performed in hostile environments with limited resources.
SIMETRI’s TCMC physician assistant instructors teach a wide range of individual courses, including didactic instructional support in casualty care at the point of injury, triage, primary and secondary survey of combat casualties to include airway management, extremity trauma, chest trauma, thermal burns, blood transfusions, wound management, antibiotics and pain control in the combat environment, splinting and dressing workshop, and fluid maintenance.
“TCMC is some of the most rewarding work that we do,” said SIMETRI CEO Angela Alban. “Very few science and tech companies are given the opportunity to implement practical solutions to the men and women who risk everything to save lives overseas. The military has continued to put their trust in SIMETRI and the way we repay that trust is by ensuring that our warfighters can rely on medical caregivers who have been expertly trained to treat critical trauma in any and all environments.”
