Army Medical Corps physicians practice in three main areas: Operational Medicine, Clinical Medicine and Research Medicine. Our physicians use — and often help pioneer — the most sophisticated medical technologies and the latest treatment modalities. They work in some of the most advanced
medical facilities in the world. Consultation with recognized experts from both military and private sector practice is an integral part of patient care.
This highly professional and challenging medical environment offers a multitude of opportunities for professional growth. You may serve as faculty in one of our graduate medical education programs, which are some of the finest in the country. Take on leadership roles for programs that are helping to advance medicine both here and abroad. Or even serve on boards or councils. The opportunity for professional growth is just one of the benefits that make the U.S. Army an ideal choice for anyone who wants to realize his or her fullest potential as a physician.
When you become a member of the Army Medical Corps, you work with some of the best and brightest in the medical field. The board certification passing rate for graduates of Army residency and fellowship programs is 96 percent on the first try. That’s well above the national average. U.S. Army hospitals are accredited by The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations, which also accredits hospitals in the private sector.
Every day there are over 40,000 clinic visits to U.S. Army medical facilities and clinics around the world. You’ll experience greater case diversity and may even have the chance to see and study diseases that are not usually encountered in the private sector. And you will treat patients—not on their ability to pay but by the treatment you deem necessary.
Whether you serve on active duty, or maintain your practice in the community and serve when needed through the U.S. Army Reserve, as a member of the Army Medical Corps, you’ll be part of the team revolutionizing the practice of medicine.
