Readiness Skill Sustainment Training Program (RSSTP)

This hallmark program was first developed with the Arizona Air National Guard to meet pre-deployment training needs. The course originally was structured for the Guard and Reserve components to fulfill their Annual Training Readiness/Critical Skills requirements. Its success has expanded to Active-Duty personnel. We partner with Valleywise Healthcare, Scottsdale Fire Department and Phoenix Fire Department to offer trauma, burn, first responders, intensive care unit and operating room experiences. 

HonorHealth has contractual agreements with the US Air Force Reserve, the National Guard Bureau, as well as several active-duty Air Force and Army units, plus other military organizations. 

This program includes skills refresher training, trauma lectures, over 12 hours of simulation and over 40 hours of clinical duties. Clinical rotations are customized, hands-on experiences that enable military personnel to practice needed skills, particularly in preparation for deployment. We can accommodate up to nine medics and nurses and the following ancillary medical specialties:

  • Dietary
  • Pharmacy
  • Physical Therapy
  • Radiology
  • Respiratory Therapy
  • Surgical

We are able to accommodate a dentist / dental tech team through our community outreach program. Please email Lenore for more information.
