Helpful Skills The normal environment of an Army Medical Corps officer's work requires time-sensitive problem analysis with an accurate, sound and immediate decision.

Effective patient care requires the proper balance between technical skills and the ability to apply the appropriate treatment or procedure at the right moment.

Physicians gain this knowledge through continuing medical education and experience sustained by mentoring, additional institutional training, continuous self-development and progressive levels of assignments within their specialty.
