Through state-of-the-art, hands-on, scenario-driven training based on lessons learned from today`s battlefields and clinical settings, we train and develop military and some civilian students into proficient and ready members of the AMEDD Team. And as always, credible feedback influences training development and resourcing decisions.
To accomplish this mission USASAM’s recruits some of the world`s most capable and innovative military instructors, training developers, and DoD Civilian staff members then provides them with professional staff development and career life-cycle management to ensure that our students will continue to receive the benefits of the best education and training opportunities available.
