You will have the following sustainment requirements:
Non-trauma module (NTM) every 2 years. Approximately 40 hour refresher on vet, prev med, dental, physical therapy, psych.
Special Operations Combat Medic Skills Sustainment Course (SOCMSSC) every 2 years. It is here that you will recertify in ATP, ACLS, PEPP, etc. and refresh those core 18D skills.
Medical Proficiency Training (MPT). These are hospital rotations where you will serve at particular facilities in a variety of disciplines. ER, surgery, anesthesia, burn, ortho, PT, and others. If you do 2 weeks, it expires in 2 years. If you do 4 weeks, it expires in 4 years.
