Operation Bushmaster

Smoke fills the night sky, voices of the "wounded" call out for help, and exploding bombs and gunfire stir turmoil on a mock battlefield at Fort Indiantown Gap, Pennsylvania. Students are expected to bring order out of this chaos by locating and triaging the casualties, in the midst of a simulated mass casualty, under the watchful eye of USU faculty. The exercise augments lessons learned in USU classrooms and serves as the final exam for the Military and Contingency Medicine course, taken by all fourth-year School of Medicine students as well as some students in the Graduate School of Nursing.
