Members of the 10th Combat Support Hospital from across the country gathered at Fort Carson to conduct a week-long medical training exercise.

Medical trainees are preparing for future deployments and humanitarian missions. The hospital's goal is to put up a facility with 84 beds, an operating room, two intensive care units, three intermediate care units, X-Ray, pharmacy, laboratory, dining facility and a chaplain.

The unit will also include intelligence areas, such as Tactical Operations Center (TOC) and Administrative Logistics Operations Center (ALOC).

A total of three surgeries will be done on volunteers this week to evaluate the team's surgical capabilities.

The hospital will be used in war zones and their training includes similar situations.

The training takes place between March 14-21.
