The Air Force Medical Service (AFMS) Surgeon General needed to standardize medical modeling and simulation training for better skill acquisition and retention. AFMS contracted with 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. The project’s goal was improving the existing Air Force Medical Modeling and Simulation Training (AFMMAST) program.
ICF developed and staffed a multicourse, leading-edge training program based on unique client needs and best practices. With its rapid expansion and distributed nature, AFMMAST allowed more individuals and teams worldwide to be trained in critical medical skills. Personnel at each site developed simulation training scenarios and curricula to meet the needs of medical professionals.
Effective, sustainable, and cost-effective delivery of medical simulation training is provided to thousands of medical personnel each year at more than 80 sites worldwide. ICF worked with the client to create a program that would support training expansion while ensuring standardization and improved skill acquisition and retention.
