This clinic allows the soldier to take a leading, active role in the evaluation and treatment process.  In order to refine the role each active duty member can improve upon, the clinician & patient work together to create research centered care.  This teamed approach positively impacts elite tactical response force capability though Human Performance Optimization goals specific to nuclear life-cycle costs. Under direct supervision from the licensed Athletic Training resident a translational research approach helps create a focus to anticipate future manpower readiness specific to the nuclear security enterprise. The research focuses to create a more specialized, rather than traditional, military clinic role into an industrial, real-life setting. This clinic utilizes a unique model of health care and presents patient-driven outcomes which facilitate enhanced capabilities specific to each patient.
