The NATO Centre of Excellence for Military Medicine (NATO MILMED COE) has been active in ensuring the interoperability of medical units via its activities practically since its establishment. Our work in concepts, doctrine, processing of observations, and validating Lessons Learned and our courses are all key elements of this, but there comes a time when evaluating how well a team, a medical unit, or a treatment facility is needed, and that’s where our Medical Evaluator Course or MEDEVAL for short comes into play.
At the Norwegian base in Sessvollmoen, near Oslo, a team of Subject Matter Experts carried out a MEDEVAL in the third week of November 2022. They evaluated the rapidly deployable Role 2 Forward of the Norwegian Army.
Recently the NATO MILMED COE and 4 instructors from Hungary, USA, Netherlands, Norway executed and facilitated a MEDEVAL Course at the Military Barracks of the Sessvollmoen garrison in Sessvollmoen, close to Oslo in Norway.
