A doctor who has been training soldiers and medical personnel in treating battlefield wounds since 2000 is accused of using his students as human guinea pigs. John Henry Hagmann gave at least 10 students the drug ketamine and then had other students perform penile nerve-block procedures on them, according to an investigation by the Virginia Board of Medicine. He also had students inserted with catheters, gave trainees drugs and alcohol, and used two participants “for personal gain and sexual gratification.” Hagmann’s license has been temporarily suspended and he will face a medical board hearing on June 19. Hagmann’s training company, Deployment Medicine Consultants, has also come under fire for using live pigs in training exercises.
