Life as an Army Doctor is like no civilian role out there. Full of variety, opportunity and challenge, you can get much more out of life when you care for our troops. Their heath is paramount to our success – you’ll hold it all together. This is your chance to put your training into practice in a setting where you can make the greatest possible impact.
You’ll handle all the challenges you’d face in day-to-day civilian life, and more. You could be treating casualties on the frontline, caring for soldiers in barracks, deploying out to field hospitals or providing medical cover at a sports event. Whatever the day has in store for you, you’ll be handling injuries and illnesses that push your knowledge and test your limits – taking you to the top of your profession. The sense of achievement is worth it – there’s nothing else like it.
You’ll travel to some of the remotest corners of the world, learning to work in some of the most challenging and hostile conditions. You’ll build bonds with your unit that’ll never break. Wherever you are in the world, you’ll be practicing to the highest standard of medical care, receiving outstanding training and working with cutting-edge equipment.
