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.
