Call for Faculty Volunteers – Operation Bushmaster 2022

Posted on

It’s time to prepare for Operation Bushmaster 2022.  We are searching for highly motivated, operationally focused faculty who can guide the operational and clinical scenarios for a platoon of students in a simulated austere environment.  As in years past, we are looking to recruit exceptional military medical officers to mentor our students, as well as provide objective feedback on their performance in medical and leadership positions.  We are also recruiting senior NCOs from all services to serve as platoon sergeants and demonstrate the ideal officer/enlisted working relationship.  Please see the attached Faculty Info for more information on the specific roles at Bushmaster.

Iteration 1: 8-12 October 2022 (travel on 7 Oct and return on late 12 Oct/13 Oct)

Iteration 2: 17-21 October 2022 (travel on 16 Oct and return on late 21 Oct/22Oct)

***Travel will be funded by USU but you must have approval to participate from your home unit***

If you are interested in serving as a faculty member, please apply at this link:  Bushmaster 2022 Faculty Application

Timeline for applications:

Applications must be submitted by 1 July 2022

Notifications of acceptance will be sent around 15 July 2022

Feel free to share this link with anyone who you feel would serve well as a Bushmaster faculty member – particularly motivated senior NCOs who could serve as a platoon sergeant.  If you would like to strongly endorse someone, send me an email so that I can look out for their name. If you are selected to serve on the faculty, there will be required prework (about 8 hours prior to arriving for faculty training day) to ensure that you are prepared for the updated scenario and assessment requirements.  

Please let me know if you have any questions.  And, thank you all for volunteering your time in order to help our students grow.  Operation Bushmaster is a pivotal experience for them all and their experience depends heavily on the faculty.  You all are contributing to the readiness and success of our students.  I look forward to hearing from many of you and working with you soon.

Wishing you all well,


Leslie Vojta, MD, Lt Col, USAF, MC
