Military Partnership Programs at HonorHealth

The Military Partnership Program began in 2004 with 24 Arizona Air National Guard medical personnel. Since then we have trained more than 2200 Soldiers and Airmen in trauma and deployment skills. The Military Partnership program’s 7500 square foot training center is located on the HonorHealth Scottsdale Osborn Medical Center campus. All branches of the military, active duty, National Guard and Reserves may participate.

Our program includes:

  • Readiness Skill Sustainment Training Program – Two-week annual training course with clinical trauma and other rotations structured for the Guard and Reserves.
  • Seasoning Training – 6-week clinical rotation for USAF Reserves or Air National Guard medical technicians who recently graduated from Phase I/II training.
  • Medical Simulation Training – Provides realistic medical training using hi-fidelity human simulators.
  • Nurse Transition Program - A 10 week course designed to prepare new graduate nurses for active duty military service. HonorHealth is one of four NTP training sites and is recognized as a Center of Excellence by the Air Force Surgeon General. The NTP educates more than 60 nurses annually. At graduation, these Air Force nurses are ready to meet the unique challenges of military nursing in both domestic and deployed settings globally.
  • Critical Care / Emergency Trauma Nursing Fellowship - A 12-month training program for USAF Active Duty nurses in our Emergency Department and Special Care units. Fellows gain theory and hands-on clinical experience in accordance with professional standards of care. At the completion of the Fellowship, nurses emerge experienced clinicians in Critical Care and Emergency Trauma with the confidence to care for the highest acuity patients.
