There are more opportunities to being part of the Army Health Care Team than you think. With a great financial benefits package and continuing educational programs, you can pursue a successful career in your chosen health care field while leading a comfortable and rewarding lifestyle.

Explore some of the opportunities you’ll gain by becoming part of the Army Health Care Team.

Dental Corps

Helping others. Serving your country. Practicing your specialty. No other health care program can match the opportunities you'll have or the professional experience you'll gain in the Army Dental Corps.

As an Officer in the Army Dental Corps you'll spend time doing what you care about most—directly treating patients. You won't have to worry about starting a practice, establishing a patient base, hiring staff or purchasing equipment because you'll already be part of one of the best worldwide dental networks around.

An Army Dentist does much more than practice in one area of dentistry. As an Officer and a dentist, you may have the opportunity to advance your education in areas such as: oral surgery, prosthodontics, endodontics, periodontics and orthodontics.

You will work with other dedicated dental professionals, consult board-certified specialists and possibly participate in important dental research.

In addition to a generous benefits package, you will have the opportunity to continue your education through continuing education courses, seminars and conferences.

You can decide to either serve full time as an Officer on Active Duty or maintain your civilian practice and serve part time in the Reserve. Either way, becoming an Army Dentist gives you a cumulative experience you can't match anywhere in the civilian world. And that's part of a philosophy we call being An Army of One.

Medical Corps

As a physician in the Army Medical Corps you’ll be working alongside professionals who are every bit as committed and focused as you. What’s more, you won’t have to worry about starting a practice, establishing a patient base, hiring staff or purchasing equipment because you’ll already be part of one of the best worldwide Health Care networks around. As a Physician and Officer, you’ll do much more than practice medicine. You’ll be trained as a leader and you’ll be given the opportunity to participate in pioneering medical discovery and research.

In addition to a generous and competitive benefits package, you’ll have the opportunity to continue your education through continuing education courses, seminars and conferences. You can decide to either serve full time as an Officer on Active Duty or maintain your private practice and serve part time in the Army Reserve.

Either way, becoming an Army physician gives you an experience you can’t match anywhere in the civilian world. It can help you get where you want to be financially, professionally and personally. And that’s part of a philosophy we call being An Army of One.



Medical Service Corps

The Army Medical Service Corps is the most diverse and integral part of the Army Health Care Team; its Officers have been essential members of the Army medical support team for combat operations in Korea, Kosovo, Somalia, Panama and Iraq.

As a member of the Army Medical Service Corps, you'll have the chance to develop your leadership skills while pursuing a career in one of the most diverse branches of the Army. You could be involved in direct patient care in a hospital setting, administrative work at a staff headquarters or practicing your specialty in a field environment in the U.S. or overseas.

Whatever your specialty in the Medical Service Corps, you can choose to serve full time as an Officer on Active Duty or maintain your private practice and serve part time in the Army Reserve. Both have their unique rewards.

Medical Specialist Corps

The Army Medical Specialist Corps is comprised of four distinct professions: Occupational Therapist, Physical Therapist, Dietitian and Physician Assistant. Each comes with its own unique opportunities, experiences, and equally important role in supporting the Army Health Care Team.

Whatever your specialty in the Medical Specialist Corps, you can choose to serve full time as an Officer on Active Duty or maintain your private practice and serve part time in the Army Reserve. Both have their unique rewards.

Nurse Corps

As a member of the Army Nurse Corps, you'll be given opportunities to apply your nursing skills that aren't available in the civilian community. Your role as an Officer will afford you the chance to lead a nursing team in caring for your patients. The autonomy to practice nursing as part of the Army Health Care Team is unlike most civilian health care facilities. Your professional judgment will be the driving force behind ensuring that all aspects of a patient's care are addressed, and you'll be responsible for initiating coordination of a patient's multidisciplinary care.

The Army Nurse Corps believes in a holistic nursing philosophy. You'll identify and organize resources for patients and their families to help them with inpatient, outpatient and home care. Because you're also a Soldier nurse, you'll be able to understand the special concerns and needs of your Soldier patients allowing you to better serve them. Identifying with your fellow Soldiers is essential to providing effective health care for them. Explore your options in the Army Nurse Corps below.

Veterinary Corps

As an Army Veterinarian, you have the opportunity to utilize your professional training and experience in a wide variety of areas from three primary areas of focus: animal medicine, veterinary public health and research and development.

Not only can you treat government-owned animals, but you'll also treat the valued pets of service members and their families. Army Veterinary Corps Officers are responsible for programs ensuring the safety and security of Department of Defense food supplies, both here and abroad. Approximately one-third of Veterinary Corps Officers are involved in Research and Development in an incredible range of focus areas, from basic breast cancer research to vaccine development.

Active Duty and Reserve Veterinary Corps Officers often deliver veterinary public health programs around the world such as vaccination programs in Ecuador, teaching Thai veterinary technicians or supporting Foot and Mouth Disease eradication efforts in Mongolia.

As a Reserve Veterinary Corps Officer, you can enjoy the benefits of working in a highly professional environment and have the satisfaction of serving your community and your country. Normally serving one weekend a month and two weeks a year, the Reserve Veterinarian provides valuable support to the Veterinary Corps while gaining invaluable experience to take back to his/her civilian workplace.

Benefits

Whether you serve full time on Active Duty or part time in the Army Reserve, the Army Health Care Team offers a variety of benefits for your career and lifestyle.

Imagine conducting your practice without worrying about profit-based motives such as overhead, establishing a patient base, hiring competent staff, rent, utilities, equipment and rising malpractice insurance costs. In the Army, it's a reality.

You can also continue your education and specialization to further your health care career. Continuing education courses, seminars, teaching, research—you’ll have the opportunity to train and learn in your area of professional expertise when you join.

In some cases, the Army can help pay your tuition. There may be an Army scholarship program that meets your needs.
