U.S. Army Medical Department Center and School (AMEDDC&S) designated an Army Center of Excellence (CoE)

On 19 February 2015, Headquarters, Department of the Army, designated the AMEDD Center and School as the Army`s Health Readiness Center of Excellence.


As an Army Health Readiness CoE, the AMEDD Center and School will play an expanded role supporting the Army to lead the design, integration, education, and training of new and innovative approaches to health and the Army Health System. The designation enables the command to focus on medical capability development and integration functions and serve the Army as a single agency with which to coordinate the medical and health needs of Soldiers and their Families. The Health Readiness Center of Excellence also establishes operational conditions for the command to establish a university model and degree granting authority for the AMEDD Center and School as an academic institution. The AMEDDC&S reorganized to enhance mission command, improve functional alignment, fully implement the Army Health Readiness Center of Excellence, and set the conditions for becoming a degree-granting institution. Restructuring the AMEDDC&S HRCoE into two training brigades with cadre, faculty and students assigned to the same organization will enhance mission command and improve functional alignment for the brigades, each of which will have responsibility for the execution of training and education, as well as quality of life and immersion into the Army Profession. It will also create a focus for concept, requirements, and doctrinal development in a Capability Development and Integration Directorate (CDID) analogous to other CoEs.

The Army Health Readiness CoE under the US Army Medical Command mission command maintains a focus on combat casualty care and aligns with Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) Centers of Excellence in terms of the authority and responsibility for developing medical readiness and health concepts, identifying medical readiness and health capability gaps, and defining and refining future Soldier medical and health requirements established by TRADOC.

The CoE structure increases collaboration across CoEs, other organizations, programs, and the generating force to improve support to the operating force. It embraces best practices and initiatives that improve efficiency and effectiveness of the Army and other Service partners overall. Its common structure across all CoEs improves the ability of external agencies to communicate with CoE subordinate elements. Where integrated staffs are realized and common instruction shared, manpower requirements are decreased and greater synergy is gained between staffs and schools.

The Army HRCoE supports the Army Campaign Plan and the Army Medicine 2020 Campaign Plan by providing The Surgeon General a mission command structure from which to lead the design, integration, and training of new and innovative approaches to health and the Army Health System which, in turn, enable a ready, resilient force of Soldiers, Families, and Communities for the Army. The Army HRCoE better focuses the Army on improving the readiness of the force by achieving healthy outcomes, promoting sleep, activity, and nutrition as a performance triad and reducing the number of medically non-ready Soldiers. The HRCoE maintains a focus on combat casualty care and aligns with other TRADOC CoEs in terms of the authority and responsibility for developing medical/health concepts, identifying medical/health capability gaps, and refining future health readiness requirements based on Soldier capability needs established by TRADOC.

As a major subordinate command of the US Army Medical Command, the Army Medical Department Center and School is reorganizing to align with other Army Centers of Excellence and facilitate the integration of functional and branch proponent efforts supporting Army and Army Medical Department Doctrine, Organization, Training, Material, Leadership, Personnel and Facility (DOTMLPF) capabilities and requirements to improve initial entry training, initial military instruction and education, and mission command.

The Army Medical Department Center and School reorganized to enhance mission command, improve functional alignment, fully implement the Army Health Readiness Center of Excellence, and set the conditions for becoming a degree-granting institution.

Restructuring the command into two training brigades with cadre, faculty and students assigned to the same organization will enhance mission command and improve functional alignment for the brigades, each of which will have responsibility for the execution of training and education, as well as quality of life and immersion into the Army profession.
