This course is a one-day virtual training to present an executive overview of two medical modeling tools: the Medical Planners’ Toolkit (MPTK) and the Joint Medical Planning Tool (JMPT).

Attendees will gain exposure to both MPTk and JMPT and see examples of how the tools have been used to model problem sets within the Navy and the Marine Corps. Upon completion, attendees will have a broad understanding of:

This class is targeted towards senior medical personnel working with or within operational units. Some experience with operational medical planning is preferred, but not required. Attendees of this course should not expect in-depth training on MPTk or JMPT.
