Team Army Medicine:
I am extremely proud of the contributions and personal sacrifices made every
day at home and abroad by our Army Medicine Enlisted Corps - you are indeed
the tip of the spear for our AMEDD. For 129 years the Enlisted Corps has
provided excellent care to our wounded, ill and injured. We thank each
Enlisted Soldier for the professionalism and selfless service to the U.S.
Army, the AMEDD, and our great Nation. Please join me in celebrating our
Enlisted Corps as we celebrate a 129-year history of selfless service.
Serving to Heal . . . Honored to Serve!

The inaugural class of the Enlisted to Medical Degree Preparatory Program (EMDP2) kicked off in August of 2014. The two year program prepares enlisted service members from all branches of service to take the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) and be competitive for admittance into medical school. On 10 June, 4 Soldiers from the inaugural class in-processed into the Basic Officer Leaders Course (BOLC), continuing their journey to becoming AMEDD Officers and doctors. All four have been accepted into Uniformed Services University for Health Sciences (USUHS) and will begin their studies in medical school in the fall. Their success in EMDP2 is a testament to the quality of Soldiers within our force and the support provided by USUHS.
