Army Medical Corps

As a health care professional with the U.S. Army Reserve, you’ll be exposed to new techniques, procedures and points of view. You’ll also gain knowledge and skills that you’ll be proud to take home to your own practice.


Army ROTC nurse cadets may qualify for scholarships and other additional benefits to help start gaining the valuable career and leadership skills of an officer in the Army Nurse Corps.

Army Medicine

As a member of the U.S. Army health care team you will do what you do best — use your professional skills and best judgment to provide a full spectrum of patient care. You’ll provide this expert care in facilities that are second to none, using equipment and procedures that are often more advanced than their private-sector counterparts.

Along with offering competitive pay and comprehensive benefits, the U.S. Army health care team supports and encourages your continued learning. If you’re ready to specialize or pursue an advanced degree, we have a number of programs than can help. You may qualify to receive tuition, pay and allowances that will let you focus your attention on learning. And if you have nursing school loans to repay, the Active Duty Health Professions Loan Repayment Program may help you repay up to $120,000 of those loans.

The U.S. Army health care team offers one more important benefit. You may choose active duty or serve in the U.S. Army Reserve.  As a nurse and an officer on the U.S. Army Reserve health care team, you can continue to work in your own community and serve when needed. In addition to providing you with some great benefits, your experience here will enhance your career and enrich your life.

James, medical student: So, my perceptions of the Army have definitely changed. The biggest thing would be taking that umbrella off of the words "Army Military."

Rahim, medical student: This really helps clear up a lot of those misinformed ideas that are out on the Internet, or that the general public may have.

James: The biggest thing for me was getting over that fear of the uniform and the Army lingo and all that stuff. And that it's still real people. They're not drill sergeants here, telling you how to practice medicine or something like that.

Lawrence, family practice resident: It's nice. It makes you comfortable, to actually come down and see what it's like. If I was to go back, I would have done HPSP, I think. Because, then there is no debt.

Alexander, medical student: It sounded like a really good opportunity, so I thought I'd look into it a little more.

James: I really understand more of what the Army is about, specifically what being a doctor in the Army is all about.

Larry (speaking to Army Medical team member): Thanks very much, because this kind of changes my outlook on things.
