Medical Simulation + Training

ICF provides learning strategies and technologies to the defense medical community to ensure that U.S. military medical personnel are well-prepared to face today's challenges.



The training of medical personnel is critical to saving lives. New learning strategies and technologies are being introduced to the medical community with the intent of ensuring that medical personnel are well-prepared to face ever-increasing challenges—whether at home or on the battlefield.

ICF brings the knowledge and expertise to its clients with:

  • Systems Approach—based on proven instructional strategies and integrated with advanced training technologies
  • Sound Instructional Approach—combined with the right technological solution to achieve top performance when practicing medical procedures
  • Leveraged Research—to advance state-of-the-art medical simulation and training technology, including exploration of simulation-based gaming technologies and advancement of authenticity in medical simulations

ICF’s approach begins with an analysis of training and performance requirements and adheres to the proven principles of instructional systems design. We bring specific learning objectives, learning activities, performance assessment, and feedback in order for learning to take place.

Our design and development efforts are driven by the learning requirements as well as the customer needs and any constraints (such as financial or schedule). Once we have developed the training, we evaluate the effectiveness of the training in terms of achievement of desired results. We are solution-neutral and focused only on achieving the desired results.

ICF uses an interdisciplinary team comprised of instructional systems designers, performance technologists, medical experts, and technical experts in simulation technology, all focused on delivering performance improvement. By staying abreast of advancements in methodology and technology, we leverage those advancements to deliver state-of-the-art solutions. Through modeling and simulation, we conduct research in virtual environments and apply innovative applications of these promising approaches to training tasks.

ICF International’s 30-year history of training development for both government and commercial clients provides us with a broad knowledge base that allows us to provide our clients with the right solutions.
