About Us




Train, educate, and qualify healthcare professionals and skilled warfighters to support maritime dominance.



Recognized as the center of excellence in operational medicine and warfighter & aircrew survivability across the range of military operations through innovative and evidence-based education and training.







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, Florida, NMOTC oversees 6 detachments and 18 training centers in more than 60 facilities spread across the U.S.  More than 750 personnel support 64 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 18,000 students annually, the largest training throughput in Navy Medicine. 
Each one of those 18,000 is one more ray of hope in the field – one more way to save a life.
