Welcome

The National Center for Medical Readiness (NCMR) provides medically oriented education, training, product testing, and research opportunities for medical and non-medical civilian and military personnel.

At its 52-acre austere training environment — Calamityville® — near Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Fairborn, Ohio, NCMR’s training courses equip and empower America’s medical responders and non-medical personnel with the experience and knowledge necessary to prepare them not only for their day-to-day challenges, but also for their “worst day.”
