On 20 June, COL Jeremy C. Pamplin took the reins from COL Gina Adam as the tenth Director to serve at the Telemedicine & Advanced Technology Research Center. No stranger to the TATRC organization, COL Pamplin arrived in August 2018 and took on the role of Deputy Director for the past ten months where he had the chance to gain a deeper understanding about this extremely unique organization and its numerous innovative initiatives. Described as being “born for this role, and being at the right place at the right time,” COL Pamplin’s energetic and all-inclusive leadership style has really been a motivator and force multiplier. COL Pamplin comes to TATRC from the Madigan Army Medical Center (MAMC) where he began the Army’s first Tele-Critical Care service from 2016-2018. Prior to his time at MAMC, he was the Chief of Clinical Trials in Burns and Trauma and the Medical Director of the U.S. Army Burn Intensive Care Unit at the U.S. Army Institute of Surgical Research. He has served as medical director of surgical and medical ICUs since completing his Critical Care Medicine fellowship at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. COL Pamplin deployed twice: once in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom as the Chief of Critical Care for the 86th Combat Support Hospital and once to Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom as the Deputy Deployed Medical Director of the 33rd Field Hospital (UK), and the American Contingent’s physician leader. He helped develop and start the first extracorporeal membrane oxigenation program at Brooke Army Medical Center. He was the principal investigator for the ADvanced Virtual Support for Special OpeRations forces (ADVISSOR) project that transitioned to the ADvanced Virtual Support for OpeRational Forces (ADVISOR) Service, the Army Virtual Medical Center’s Operational Virtual Health Capability. COL Pamplin received a bachelor of science from West Point in 1997 and his medical degree from the Uniformed Services University in 2001. In the few short months since COL Pamplin became Director, the team has witnessed his sincere and genuine efforts to encourage and involve everyone at TATRC to become agents of change and innovators within their own areas, to constantly think outside the box, and, in keeping with the Army Future’s Command motto, truly “Forge the Future.”
