Common Questions About AMEDD Training and Residencies
Do I get to choose where my residency is as an Army Medical Officer?
Yes, you will be able to choose where you train during your medical residency. That said, matching with your residency of choice is dependent upon the military’s needs at that time. With military hospitals and medical facilities located around the world, you’ll have the opportunity to train in the U.S. or overseas.
What rank are medical professionals in the Army?
When you join the Army health care team, you enter as an Officer. As a leader in the Army, you’ll be in charge of qualified teams much sooner than you would in the civilian world and earn more independence within your practice.
Do Army Medical Officers have to attend Basic Training?
As an AMEDD Officer, you won't participate in Basic Combat Training that enlisted Soldiers go through. Instead, you'll attend the AMEDD Basic Officer Leadership Course (BOLC), a basic orientation course to the Army Health Care System and the Army way of life.
What types of advancements have been made by Army medical professionals?
As a leader in medical advancements, U.S. Army medical professionals continue to develop new, life-changing technologies and tools, such as 3-D printed surgical implants, a portable X-ray machine, vaccines, and more.
Can I choose to serve either part time or full time as a medical professional in the Army?
