    I wasn't in the navy but I would presume that as the sick bay on a flat top is more or less an emergency room that there probably are emergency medicine technicians there. Good luck to you.

    Yes. There's a full surgical suite and hospital, including a small ICU, on every aircraft carrier. The big-deck amphibious ships have the same setup... LHA, LHD.

    Aircraft carriers have hospitals on board... with a surgical suite... and paramedic/EMT's, called Corpsmen...

    there are doctors and nurses on board. they are not necessarily Trauma specialists. there will be at least one Flight Surgeon.
