About Us




To provide training for Operational Medicine and Aviation Survival.



Recognized as the global leader in operational medicine, innovative and responsive to the challenges of the warfighter.







From corpsmen deployed with the Marines, doctors and nurses serving with Expeditionary Medical Facilities, and administrators and independent duty corpsmen serving on ships, aircraft,  and submarines, their mission is the same--to save lives.  The Navy Medicine Operational Training Command (NMOTC) supports Navy Medicine’s life-saving mission by training these medical professionals – and in many cases the warfighter themselves – for theater-specific contingencies. 

Headquartered at Naval Air Station Pensacola, Fla., NMOTC oversees 6 detachments and 12 training centers in more than 60 facilities spread across the U.S.  More than 600 personnel support some 65 instructional programs within aviation, surface and undersea warfare, expeditionary forces, and special operations; supporting readiness for the Navy, other U.S. armed forces and U.S. allies globally.   
NMOTC provides funding and manages quota control for specialized courses like Cold Weather Medicine, Humanitarian Assistance, and Chemical & Biological Casualties Management.  
NMOTC is home to the Robert E. Mitchell Center for Prisoner of War Studies established in 1972.  The Center supports former POWs from every U.S. war and conflict since WWII, including the civilians held captive during the Iranian Hostage Crisis as well as POWs during Operation Iraqi Freedom. 
NMOTC has come a long way from its origin in 1946 as the School of Aviation Medicine—now training more than 24,000 students annually, the largest training throughput in Navy Medicine. 
Each one of those 24,000 is one more ray of hope in the field – one more way to save a life.


Naval Medical Forces Support Command (NMFSC) (Main Campus), as well as the Naval Medical Leader and Professional Development Command, Navy Medicine Operational Training Command and their detachments (Branch Campuses) are preparing for institutional re-accreditation by the Council on Occupational Education (COE) from mid-August through mid-October 2021.  Interested stakeholders that would like to speak with representatives from COE prior to the visit, may do so by calling (800) 917-2081.

NMFSC has been accredited by COE for more than 37 years, and these visits are integral to maintaining this accreditation.

COE, is the national gold standard for evaluating excellence and is recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education as an authority on quality education.  COE grants institutional accreditation for non-degree granting and applied associate degree granting postsecondary educational institution. 

Additionally, this accreditation encourages transfer of credit between military transcripts and civilian colleges and universities.  Occurring every two to six years, the institutional accreditation process assists Navy Medicine with identifying areas of excellence, as well as those requiring improvement.
