The Joint Medical Readiness Training Center (JMRTC) preceded DMRTI and was responsible for training thousands of medical department officers. However, reengineering JMRTC’s medical readiness training efforts with an expanded scope and mission led to the establishment of DMRTI. In July 1997, JMRTC was integrated into DMRTI, forming one organization. DMRTI executes its mission under the direction and guidance of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs Force Health Protection and Readiness (DASD/HA FH&R) and the Force Health Protection Council (FHPC).
