Tactical Medicine is based off the Department of Defense’s Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC). This is a demanding level 3 course where students will learn skills and knowledge to help prevent the loss of life while in a high threat environment. The skills learned will be equally applicable for self-aid, or in aid of others. This is not a first aid course. This course deals with life threatening injuries due to traumatic injuries. Students will learn to operate in austere conditions, with limited equipment and limited access to higher trained medical personnel. This course will also deal with situations where transport to hospitals may be delayed.
