    An Army surgical team is honing its trauma skills at a Miami hospital.
     
    The 909th Army Forward Surgical Team from Fort Sheraton, Ill., is currently training at Ryder Trauma Center. The training program includes lectures,

    simulations, clinical rotations and a 48-hour stint providing care for each patient brought into the trauma center.
     
    Once their training is completed, the 22-member surgical team is scheduled to deploy overseas.
     
    The team will perform a trauma simulation Friday, picking up a mock patient on the hospital's helipad.
     
    The simulation is part of a Veterans Day observance at the University of Miami/Jackson Memorial Medical Center.
     
    Ryder is one of the busiest trauma centers in the nation. The Army has sent surgical teams to Miami for training for more than a decade.
