Medical Corps

Medical Corps Sharepoint (CAC Enabled)

The Army Medical Corps are professionals that are unique in that we serve two professions; the Profession of Medicine and the Profession of Arms. We are Medical Corps Officers, not doctors who happen to wear a uniform. We live our Army's core values: Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal courage. I encourage you to learn more about Army Medicine and the myriad opportunities to serve as a Medical Corps Officer.

The Medical Corps ensures a ready medical force and medically ready force that recruits, trains, employs, and retains highly skilled Medical Corps officers in support of Army strategic priorities.

Medical Specialist Corps

Medical Specialist Corps Website

The Medical SP Corps develops leaders that enhance Soldier health and readiness in garrison and throughout Multi-Domain Operations. Since World War I, Occupational Therapists and Physical Therapists (formerly known as reconstruction aides) and Dietitians have served the Army in a civilian capacity. On April 16, 1947 the Women’s Army Specialist Corps, comprised of officers from those three professions, was established by Public Law 80-36. The law was amended in 1955 to allow commissioning of males and the corps was renamed the Army Medical Specialist Corps (AMSC). In 1992, Physician Assistants were converted from warrant to commissioned officers and added to the corps’ skill inventory. By providing direct medical care as independent practitioners and physician extenders, SP officers play a key role in ensuring military medical readiness both on and off the battlefield. SP officers have served in every major conflict and humanitarian mission since the corps inception.

Military Equal Opportunity (MEO)

U.S. Army Medical Command (MEDCOM) policy requires that everyone is expected to treat all persons with dignity and respect. Soldiers who violate this policy may be subject to punishment under the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). We are members of the profession of arms and are all bound by the same professional ethic. The expectation is that all Soldiers treat one another with professional courtesy, whether that Soldier is a superior, peer, or subordinate. Simply put, treat others as you would want to be treated, with dignity and respect.

Complaint Types

  • An informal complaint is best for those issues that can be taken care of informally, or resolved through discussion, problem identification, and clarification of the issues. Informal complaints are not filed in writing and my be resolved directly by the individual, with the help of another unit member, the commander, or other person in the complainant's chain of command. Informal complaints are not subject to a time suspense.

  • A formal complaint is one that a complainant files inwriting and swears to the accuracy of the information. Formal complaints require specific actions, are subject to timelines, and require documentation of the actions taken. An individual files a formal complaint using a DA Form7279 (Equal Opportunity Complaint Form).

    The complainant must state the EO basis of the complaint(for example, unlawful discrimination based upon race, color, religion, gender (including gender identity), national origin, or sexual orientation, and describe the incident(s) in as much detail as possible to assist in the investigative process).
    Soldiers have 60 calendar days from the date of the alleged incident in which to file a formal complaint. This time limit is established to set reasonable parameters for the inquiry or investigation and resolution of complaints, to include ensuring the availability of witnesses, accurate recollection of events, and timely remedial action.

    The complainant should file his or her complaint with the commander at the lowest echelon of command at which the complainant may be assured of receiving a thorough, expeditious, and unbiased investigation of the allegations.

  • Anonymous Complaints are where the complainant remains unidentified may be handled as either an informal or a formal complaint and entered in MEO database, as such. The commander will determine if sufficient information is provided to proceed as either an informal or formal complaint. The commander will be identified as the complainant on the DA Form 7279(Equal Opportunity and Harassment Complaint Form) and in MEO database.

    If the complaint is processed as an informal complaint, the commander will determine if informing the entire command or part of the organization of the actions taken is appropriate. If during the informal or formal process of an anonymous complaint the identity of the actual complainant is revealed, the complainant will be edited in MEO database, and the actual complainant will be provided the requisite follow-up actions (DA Form 7279– 1 (Equal Opportunity and Harassment Complaint Resolution Assessment Form)).

    Actions taken regarding anonymous complaints will depend upon the extent of information provided in the anonymous complaint. If an anonymous complaint contains sufficient information to permit the initiation of an investigation, the investigation will be initiated by the commanding officer or supervisor in accordance with this instruction. If an anonymous complaint does not contain sufficient information to permit the initiation of an investigation, the information should be documented in a Memorandum for Record and maintained on file in accordance with disposition instructions and the central point of contact responsible for processing discrimination and harassment complaints. The Memorandum for Record should contain the following information, if available: date and time the information was received; a detailed description of the facts and circumstances included in the complaint; date and time the complaint was resolved and by whom; and any other pertinent information.
