Specialized Medical Training (SMT)
SPECOPS uses U.S. Army SPECIAL FORCES MEDICS, also known as 18D’s. These are renowned throughout the world and recognized by all the world’s elite forces as the supreme medical experts. They are trained in trauma, up to ER level, but as a lone operator without an ER team and all the high technology. They are also experts at tropical diseases. They have unique training in nuclear, biological and chemical field medical care as well as primitive medicine for when there are no modern medicines available. They are also trained in veterinary and dental medicine. They are well versed in the basics of medical care in remote and hostile environments across the health care spectrum from lab work, ob-gyn, dermatology, pharmico-kinetics and prescribing meds, orthopedics, pediatrics, and all other medical knowledge required to practice as a "Third World Jungle Doctor."
