The Advantages of Army Health Care

The Army Health Care Team: Once you graduate, you will become a member of one of the most comprehensive and dynamic health care organizations in the world-the Army Medical Department. Its mission is to support America's Army at home and abroad, serving over three million beneficiaries. The Army Medical Department is comprised of six corps: Medical Corps, Dental Corps, Medical Service Corps, Medical Specialist Corps, Nurse Corps, and Veterinary Corps, plus enlisted specialist and civilian employees. Together they offer more diversity than just about any other health care system in the world.

Superior Facilities: Army health care is like no other health care in the world. Where else can you work and train at state-of-the-art facilities like Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas; Tripler Army Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii; Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C.; or the Army Burn Center, located in San Antonio, Texas and part of the U.S. Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Diseases located in Frederick, Maryland?

High-Tech Equipment: Where else can you have the opportunity to work with the latest high-tech equipment, whether it's laser technology, life-saving trauma equipment, or sophisticated telemedicine capabilities that enable Army personnel to hold teaching seminars and perform medical operations all over the world.

Quality Care: Perhaps the greatest advantage of being part of the Army Health Care Team is our commitment to patient care. Army health care professionals don't have to worry about malpractice insurance, processing insurance claims, patient billing, overhead costs, building a client base, or hiring a competitive staff. Instead, they're free to concentrate on patient care and professional growth. With over 100 challenging health care specialties to choose from, you can see why Army health care is a smart choice for more than just financial reasons.
