Medical Branch


The primary mission of the ISTC Medical Branch is to generate and sustain NATO Special Operations Combat Medics (NSOCM) through the execution of the NSOCM and NSOCM-SSC courses.  NSOCM qualified personnel are highly trained SOF soldiers who provide commanders a recognized capability to manage combat trauma in remote and austere environments in furtherance of respective worldwide missions.  To this end, the ISTC Medical Branch employs a dynamic, capabilities-focused training strategy which is based upon mastery of the specialized individual medical skills required to enable special operations in all environments.
