Navy Trauma Training Center (NTTC)

Mission Statement/Description

NTTC’s mission is to provide advanced trauma training in support of military units across the range of combat operations by enhancing combat trauma skills and medical readiness for military medical personnel. This mission is accomplished through a military/civilian partnership established in 2002 with Los Angeles General Medical Center. 

Located just east of downtown Los Angeles, Los Angeles General Medical Center (LA General) is a 650-bed Level-1 Trauma Center. LA General provides an ideal trauma training environment with over 25,000 trauma evaluations and over 6,000 trauma admissions annually. The medical staff at LA General is comprised of world-renowned teaching faculty as part of the Keck School of Medicine. 

NTTC is committed to providing didactic and clinical trauma exposure that enhances trauma knowledge and skills. The course is designed to afford students the opportunity to work alongside LA General and NTTC staff while caring for critically ill and injured patients. The training schedule includes clinical shifts, formal didactics, case discussions, high fidelity simulations, trauma skills labs, and fresh tissue dissection labs.
