SMTI's mission is to train medical vocationalists to meet the SAF's operational and peacetime requirements. Each year, more than 1,000 medical personnel (e.g. medical and dental officers, nursing officers and medics) were trained to care for our servicemen and women.
In addition to training the SAF, SMTI also contributes nationally through its non-military courses. It teaches lifesaving skills to Singapore Civil Defence Force paramedics and doctors through Advanced Trauma Life Support training. SMTI also train medical personnel of other armies.
