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 Service Corps

Medical Service Corps Website

The Medical Service Corps is the most diverse branch of the U.S. Army. This Corps is home to medical administrative, scientific, and provider specialties, from direct patient care to management of the U.S. Army’s health service system. Disciplines include: Behavioral Sciences, Health Services, Laboratory Sciences, Optometry, Pharmacy, Podiatry, and Preventative Medicine.

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.
