JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas —

The Army Medical Department is a family of more than 130,000 active, Reserve and National Guard Soldiers and civilians united in our mission to improve Soldier health, build a medical force for full spectrum operations, and deliver leading edge health services with optimized outcomes to warriors and military families.


The AMEDD Civilian Corps represents more than 45,000 of that number in more than 200 specialties.

 

Over the past 21 years, civilians have increasingly taken on positions of greater responsibility.  Now, as never before, the Army calls on its civilians to assume leadership roles and higher levels of responsibility.

 

Currently more than 310,000 Army Civilians serve in nearly 600 occupational series across the world performing missions vital to America's national defense. Nearly 4,000 of them are forward deployed.
