Ken Wheeler, Assistant Program Executive Officer for Business Operations, Program Executive Office for Simulation, Training and Instrumentation (PEO STRI) recently signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the Army Office of the Surgeon General (OTSG), Medical Command, to accommodate a team of OSTG members at PEO STRI offices in Research Park.

The agreement between the parties solidifies the presence of the Army OTSG becoming a part of Team Orlando. A team of MEDCOM employees, called the “BASICS, Service Excellence team” will have offices within PEO STRI facilities with the intention to collaborate between Team Orlando’s well-established medical simulation professionals and representatives from the Army OTSG.
The BASICS team’s role is to serve as the extended arm serving all aspects of Army medicine to maximize partnerships while sustaining first-class medical simulation capabilities throughout the world. “We’re excited about the future possibilities in medical simulation from the collaboration that will come about due to the co-location of MEDCOM personnel in PEO STRI offices,” Wheeler said.
PEO STRI, located in the heart of Central Florida, has a workforce of 1,200 military, civilian and in-house contractor support staff members. The organization has fielded training systems worldwide for nearly four decades. PEO STRI medical simulation office was stood up in 2005 with most of the medical simulation work being a result of the partnership between MSTC, STTC and industry members.
