7th Medical Brigade, 24th Combat Support Center, 67th Medical Detachment - Forward





Certifications - Overview:
Certifications within the Medical Division offer a unique opportunity for personnel to advance and take on both additional responsibilities and capabilities. Each certification represents an internalized department within the Division, with each role being led by a member of Medical's Senior Staff. These certifications are present to provide a goal for members of the division to strive for, as well as giving the opportunity for its members to have a more prominent role within the faction and unit as a whole. 

All certifications are strictly optional and there are no consequences to not choosing one. The Medical Division possesses a multitude of different paths for its members, with ample opportunity to attain leadership roles and manage an internal team. These roles exist as a means of breaking up monotony and stagnation and giving members of the Division a reason to remain active and involved.


Note: Existing characters can receive training to qualify for these certifications. Training is conducted by the Senior Specialist of that respective role. Alternatively, players may apply with a new character that has already received training in one of these certifications. However, your application will be held to a higher standard should you choose to do so.



Combat Medic:
The general entry-level certifications all medical personnel hold, this role encompasses the bulk of the Medical Division and is intended for those who aren't interested in pursuing one of the optional roles, or for those who wish to keep things simple and function as the Medic they're intended to be. The purpose of Combat Medics is to facilitate the application of medical aid to all wounded allies on the battlefield. 



Biotech Specialist:
Biotechs and limb prosthesis represent a significant investment on behalf of the Federation, with the average Class II prosthesis costing between roughly 300,000-500,000 credits. As a result, significant care is placed in ensuring that biotech prosthesis are maintained. These individuals possess significant training in multiple areas concerning biotechs. These include the installation, maintenance and function of the prosthesis themselves, as well as the neural links required to facilitate their function with the human body. For more in-depth or extensive repairs and maintenance, these Specialists will work with specially trained members of an Engineering Division. While not as massive an investment as a Marauder suit, Biotechs still represent a hefty investment by the Federation that is not to be left to the enemy or scavengers. As a result, a standing objective of all Biotech Specialists is the recovery of damaged biotechs and/or the irreparable scuttling of any that cannot be salvaged. 



Field Surgeon:
These few medical personnel are specialized in immediate life-saving surgical procedures during situations where access to proper medical facilities or autodoc surgical equipment is not readily available. These individuals are highly trained in a field that has become increasingly less common with the usage of automated surgical facilities. Surgery-qualified personnel focus on the stabilization of the most critically wounded patients until patient relocation and more significant surgical care can be provided.



Psychiatric Specialist:
These are standard medical personnel who have undergone special training and certification in Emergency Psychiatry and application of Advanced Psychology. Their primary responsibility is NOT to treat, but instead to evaluate and provide short-term psychiatric care through counseling and medication. Life for a Trooper is a stressful and psychologically damaging one. These Specialists are tasked with carrying out psychiatric evaluations and making the determination on whether or not a Trooper is a ticking time-bomb waiting to pop off, or one who simply needs a shoulder to lean on. Their recommendations are often factored into the decision of whether or not a Trooper is to be transferred for more long-term psychiatric help.




Pararescueman - 'PJ':
The 'PJ' represents the top tier of in-field medical capability and combat proficiency. These individuals undergo extensive additional training on advanced life support and combat rescue. These individuals can often be found attached and deployed with standard and Special Forces (OSW) units on the ground, or in the event of a mass casualty scenario or priority casualty (such as a Pathfinder or ranking Officer), they can be called in as an emergency support asset. Their primary role is the stabilization, containment and evacuation of wounded personnel. To facilitate this role in situations that are typically more dire than normal, these individuals have a wider range of equipment at their disposal and are capable of operating more independently.


This position has since been retired as an active certification. They exist in our lore as separate detachments.
