Naval medicine is a branch of occupational medicine concerning naval officers and seamen.

Those trained in naval medicine provide regular medical services such as vaccinations, check ups, advice and medication to navy members both on and off ship.

However, they also are extensively trained in handling a range of possible ship-related medical incidents.

Expertise in Action

In the Royal Australian Navy, many possible scenarios are prepared for by naval medical experts, including mass combat casualties, toxic hazards, fires, floods, aircraft crashes on deck, rescue situations and man overboard incidents.

Further, naval medicine experts on board RAN ships are often responsible for training and leading the Ships Medical Emergency Team, which consists of sailors from across all support departments of each ship trained in First Aid.

The development of many naval medicine procedures has been adopted by commercial and scientific ships at sea to prevent casualties in the event of an accident.
