Mission We envision, design, train, educate and inspire the world`s premier military medical force to enable readiness and strengthen America`s Army.
Envision means looking at what the Army`s medical force should look like and what it should be able to accomplish given the missions it can be expected to receive.
Design means building the tactical medical units, approving their equipment sets and developing the medical doctrine needed to provide quality healthcare in the field: whether the battlefield or the humanitarian assistance field.
