This issue of the MTM newsletter contains links to the MMAST newsletter. This new publication is designed to release information on Joint Military Medicine Simulation and Training developments across the DOD.

Scheduled for publication every two months, this MMAST newsletter provides key contact points as well as details of the latest developments across the defense medicine community.

In addition, NATO’s Centre of Excellence for Military Medicine now features your favorite Medical Training Magazine in its new and still developing “Medical Messenger” section of the website.

Since publishing the Military Simulation & Training journal over 30 years ago, Halldale has always been aware of the special training challenges faced and overcome by defense medical staff and the often extreme environments in which they work. Often in less than perfect conditions and under great stress they have overcome these disadvantages to bring soldiers home, and it is no surprise that their experience and solutions can offer a lot to their civilian counterparts.
