About the Association

ATMA is a not for profit Association that represents the interests of Australians involved in the provision and development of tactical medicine across the spectrum of applications, from the general emergency services response to high threat incidents, right through to highly specialised providers in military, police and other special operations groups. 

Our mandate is driven by our memberships enthusiasm to continually improve and provide the highest level of first aid and medical care in austere, dangerous, remote and dynamic environments. 

The development of improved capability to save lives is the underlying principle of ATMA, and this is achieved through advice, advocacy, training, networking, collaboration and the annual Australian Tactical Medicine Conference.

Strategic Partner

Founded in 1987, the Special Operations Medical Association (SOMA) brings together the unique blend of pre-hospital, tactical, wilderness, austere, disaster and deployed medicine.

Our primary goal is to advance the art and science of special operations medical care through the education and professional development of special operations medical providers.

SOMA provides a forum for military and civilian medical providers, academia and industry from around the world to meet and exchange ideas in our Scientific Assembly, through our official publication, the Journal of Special Operations Medicine (JSOM).

SOMA advances the science, technology and skills of unconventional medicine.
