Hospital Corpsman Trauma Training (HMTT)



Hospital Corpsman Trauma Training (HMTT) is designed to provide Hospital Corpsmen with a robust clinical experience in coordination with existing and future training partnerships with civilian trauma centers. This course will offer all E5 and below Corpsmen a training platform to prepare them for a future operational assignment. Corpsmen will receive hands on training and exposure to trauma patients, similar to those encountered on the battlefield and aboard ships.


Hospital Corpsman will work alongside civilian staff and military preceptors to gain hands-on experience providing care for critically injured patients. The course is comprised of formal didactic training, practical skills assessments, and clinical rotations. Upon completion of the training and within the individual's scope of practice, the member will be able to assess trauma injuries; recognize and intervene in the management of shock; perform trauma resuscitation procedures; perform continuous assessment and management of trauma patients; and apply the principles learned in a military environment. The training is conducted over a 7 week period to include holidays and weekends.


There are currently four HMTT course locations:

  1. Great Lakes Naval Station and John H. Stroger, Jr Hospital of Cook County, Chicago, Illinois
  2. University of Florida Health (Shands), Jacksonville, Florida
  3. University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, Cleveland, Ohio
  4. Wake Medical Center, Raleigh, North Carolina

All sites listed above have inner-city clinical training at Level One trauma centers. Once you are selected to attend HMTT, your training location will be determined based on the needs of the Navy. You cannot select your training location.
