Rochester moves another step closer this weekend to becoming the primary U.S. Army Reserve military medical-simulation training site. In November 2011, Col. Joaquin Cortiella, representing Brig. Gen. Bryan R. Kelly, confirmed to the Post-Bulletin a decision is pending on whether all U.S. medical reservists will rotate through medical-simulation training in Rochester at the Mayo Clinic Multidisciplinary Simulation Center…"If you look back at the old space program, this is kind of first orbital flight, so to speak," said Col. Walter Franz, a family physician at Mayo and former commanding officer of the 945th Forward Surgical Team, which is expected to deploy soon after its own simulation training.
