FTX 101: Introduction to Operational Medicine is the Department of Military and Emergency Medicine's first Field Training Exercise (FTX) and is designed to introduce new SOM students to operational activities and field training. The 10-day course is physically challenging and provides opportunities to develop leadership skills, learn basic military procedures, become familiar with weapons, tactical strategies as well as participate in the patient contextual experience role playing as a casualty for the Bushmaster FTX. The underlying premise of FTX 101 is to develop class camaraderie and the foundations for becoming a Military Medical Officer.
