Army Combat Fitness Test (ACFT)


Develop strategic messages which communicate to internal and external publics how the AMEDD Center and School Health Readiness Center of Excellence envisions, designs, trains, educates and the Army`s premier medical force.


Army Medicine Starts Here! We are the foundation on which the Army Medicine is built, sustained and transformed to the operational force. We save lives –on and off the battlefield and our message to the American public, potential recruits, the civilian medical community and educators is "send us your best, to be the best, by joining the Army Medical Department team”.


We support the military and civilian men and women of the AMEDDC&S HRCoE as they train and educate medical personnel, develop organizations and operation concepts, and generate a professional work force for the Army Medical Department.

The Directorate of Communications (DCOMM) synchronizes the command’s strategic engagements through the public affairs, marketing and protocol support.  We synchronize engagements with media, civic and business organizations, affiliated universities and command visitors to build positive, lasting medical relationships, enhance community relations and create awareness of Army and AMEDDC&S HRCoE mission, capabilities, initiatives and programs. DCOMM develops products, manages communication campaigns, synchronizes command messaging planning and executes major command events. DCOMM briefs media inquiries and local outreach engagements to the commander, coordinates responses/interviews with subject matter experts, and reports media and community outreach engagements to the command. DCOMM is responsible for command information products to include feature stories, photography, management of the command internet website and social media. DCOMM also serves as the release authority for staff faculty and student public presentations, research manuscripts, and Borden Institute publications.

DCOMM coordinates all AMEDDC&S HRCoE communication plans supporting Army, TRADOC, CAC and OTSG Public Affairs Guidance and associated campaign plans.
