|Publication Date:||1 June 2021|
Scope and Applicability
a. This instruction applies to all budget submitting office (BSO) 18 organizations with current or planned M&S for education and training purposes. While limited in scope to BSO-18, this guidance is intended to support the one NAVMED initiative of the Surgeon General of the Navy.
b. This instruction applies to NAVMED models, simulations, and simulators purchased, used, or developed by NAVMED BSO-18 activities for educational purposes. Models will include any physical, mathematical, or otherwise logical representation of an entity, object, person, service, or activity. Simulations include any technique for testing, analysis, or training in which real-world systems are used, or where real-world and conceptual systems are reproduced by a model, as defined in reference (a). Clinical simulation technologies include standardized patients, human patient simulators, task trainers, chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear (CBRN) scenarios, and computer-based and virtual reality platforms. M&S modalities which are primarily intended for non-educational purposes (e.g., mathematical modeling applications for pharmacy operations) are excluded.
