War is predicted to be the sixth leading cause of death by 2020. Opportunities for the training of military trauma care specialists are extremely limited, and many defence agencies rely on the deployment situation as the primary training for their personnel. All countries, developed and developing, recognise the importance of trauma to their healthcare systems. With global disasters, humanitarian crises and mass casualty events on the rise, the importance of specialist training to help the military in the management of these events is increasingly important.

We offer pre-deployment placements for military personnel.

Pre-deployment placements are an opportunity to gain firsthand experience of working with a hospital trauma team and to understand the differences and challenges when working in outdoor austere environments.

To find out more about pre-deployment placements please contact us at traumamasters@qmul.ac.uk

We also offer a MSc Trauma Sciences (Military and Austere) programme for postgraduate students
