Royal Australian Army Medical Corps

The role of the Royal Australian Army Medical Corps (RAAMC) is to promote health and well-being through the prevention of disease and injury, and through care, treatment and evacuation of sick and wounded.

The RAAMC, together with the Royal Australian Army Dental Corps (RAADC) and the Royal Australian Army Nursing Corps (RAANC), is responsible for providing every aspect of health care to support and maintain the health and well-being of Army personnel. 

All combat units include a medical element of members of the RAAMC so that health care and emergency medical care is always available. 

RAAMC is made up of highly trained professionals who are often called upon to work in a variety of operational and non-operational conditions. The RAAMC also trains the Army's physical training instructors, pathology technicians, operating theatre technicians and preventive medicine personnel.
