The Naval Medical Institute (SchiffMedInstM) is the central specialist institution for all medical officers of the German naval forces. The institute primarily makes its expertise in maritime medicine available to the fleet. The diving physicians also work for the entire Bundeswehr. The Institute is located in Kronshagen near Kiel together with the offices of the Central Medical Service of the German Armed Forces. The research and training focus of SchiffMedInstM is on maritime medicine as well as diving and hyperbaric medicine. To this end, the institute works intensively with both military and civilian institutions at home and abroad. The soldiers and civilian staff work across topics with, among other things, a state-of-the-art pressure chamber system, specialised diagnostic equipment, telemedicine systems and a simulator, the "Team Trainer Ship’s Hospital". Last but not least, the institute offers emergency readiness around the clock for diving and hyperbaric medicine, telemedicine as well as crisis intervention by its own marine psychologists.
