Readiness Capabilities

Each of the Military Departments – Army, Navy, and Air Force – are restructuring their Medical Departments to enhance readiness capabilities to better support the warfighter and optimize their ability to meet the operational requirements of line commanders.

The Military Departments continue to maintain:

  • Command and control of all uniformed medical personnel
  • Responsibility for manning, training and equipping these personnel
  • Setting medical readiness standards
  • Delivering certain installation-specific clinical functions outside the hospital and operational clinical services under the operational control of combatant commanders.
