About

The Medical Service Corps has two primary functions. First, it provides administrative officers the opportunity to manage various aspects of Combat Health Support. Second, the Corps provides allied science officers who directly impact the health of the Soldiers serving in the United States Army as well as their families.

The Medical Service Corps prepares its officers to be at the forefront of healthcare. The Corps provides its officers with excellent opportunities for advanced degrees. Every year, the Corps offers many programs to earn Masters and Ph.D. degrees as well as opportunities to train with private industry.

There are 24 distinct Areas of Concentration within the Corps. The assignments associated with the different AOCs range from a Medical Platoon Leader in a Brigade Combat Team, to a biochemist developing vaccines and other agents to defeat the effects of bioterrorism. The Corps is made up of highly skilled officers who provide leadership and expertise to Joint Command Strategic Operations
