To be the Army’s premier medical training institution dedicated to saving lives and fostering healthy and resilient air crewmembers
We 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.
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.
