This ICF International case study illustrates how ICF was able to deliver effective, sustainable, and cost-effective medical simulation training to thousands of medical personnel each year at more than 80 sites worldwide.
The Air Force Medical Service Surgeon General (AFMS/SG) contracted ICF in April 2007 to help manage the integration of leading-edge medical modeling and simulation (MODSIM) into the basic and continuing medical education of the AFMS at all provider levels—with the goal of improving the existing Air Force Medical Modeling and Simulation Training (AFMMAST) program.
With its rapid expansion and distributed nature, AFMMAST allowed more individuals and teams worldwide to be trained in critical medical skills with personnel at each site developing simulation training scenarios and curricula to meet the needs of medical professionals. This success led to increased demand to deploy the training at more sites. ICF addressed this need by creating a program that would support training expansion while ensuring standardization and improved skill acquisition and retention.
