ARMY DOCTORS - AN OVERVIEW

You’ll work with men and women who pioneer innovative medical techniques and breakthroughs. You’ll be given the opportunity to contribute to medical research. And most important of all, you’ll care for Soldiers and their families in some of the world’s most renowned hospitals, clinics and facilities.

You also have the option of serving as an active duty physician or in the U.S. Army Reserve.
Serving in the reserve gives you the option of working in the private sector while gaining the benefits and experience of serving on the Army health care team.
