This course is designed to instruct students on the basics
of being a mid-grade Army Medical Department (AMEDD) officer. This course
will provide the student with an increased understanding of the U.S.
Army, its various missions and most importantly, how to contribute to the
success of those missions. Students will be assigned to Alpha Company,
187th Medical Battalion for the duration of their CCC training. The
student’s focus here at the AMEDD Center & School should be
discipline, teamwork, midgrade officer skills, tactical medical doctrine,
and learning the principles behind becoming an effective, agile leader.
The Captains Career Course (CCC) is conducted by two
organizations - Alpha Company, 187th Medical Battalion, 32d Medical
Brigade and the AMEDD Captains Career Course Branch, Leader Training
Center, Academy of Health Sciences. Alpha Company performs and is
responsible for all administrative actions (in-processing, lodging, ID
cards, pay, etc.). The AMEDD CCC Branch conducts and is responsible for
all training requirements and academic issues.
Computer resources are limited at Fort Sam Houston and
students that have personal computers are highly encouraged
to bring it with them to CCC, for use in their quarters. Additionally,
students will be issued course material (on CD) that they will be
required to read, study, and learn, while they are attending the course.
