OUR VISION |MISSION

Vision:
To be the Army’s premier medical training institution dedicated to saving lives and fostering healthy and resilient air crewmembers
Mission:  
We envision, design, and train the Nation’s premier aeromedical forces to support the full spectrum of military operations.   We maintain and improve operational readiness of US Army, Joint and allied warfighting forces through aeromedical training of aviation and medical personnel.
   
Strategically postured, we envision what the future aviation medical force should look like and what it should be able to accomplish given the missions it can be expected to receive.  Building upon these projections, we create training and learning environments in which students can sharpen the capabilities they will need in order to provide the best aeromedical care possible.
   
In conjunction with strategic and operational planners, we help design the tactical aeromedical units; reviewing their equipment sets, developing their medical doctrine, and providing them with the best trained aeromedical providers needed to provide full spectrum quality healthcare.
   
Through state-of-the-art, hands-on, scenario-driven training based on lessons learned from today`s battlefields and clinical settings, we train and develop military and some civilian students into proficient and ready members of the AMEDD Team.  And as always, credible feedback influences training development and resourcing decisions.
   
To accomplish this mission USASAM’s recruits some of the world`s most capable and innovative military instructors, training developers, and DoD Civilian staff members then provides them with professional staff development and career life-cycle management to ensure that our students will continue to receive the benefits of the best education and training opportunities available.
