Veterinarian: Army AMEDD


Want to have a real impact on the world?  Then the Army can offer you a veterinary practice like no other. You may treat the cherished pets of Soldiers and their families. You may go on humanitarian missions eradicating diseases in Ecuador or Mongolia. Or, develop vaccines in the world’s most advanced laboratories. You may even care for the four-legged heroes who serve side-by-side with our Soldiers. Being an Army veterinarian is truly rewarding on many levels — professionally, personally and financially.

If you’re still in school, you may qualify for the the U.S. Army’s Health Professions Scholarship Program that pays your tuition as you earn your D.V.M. or V.M.D. at the accredited program of your choice. And if you’re already out of school, you may quality for the Health Professions Loan Repayment Program. The Army will also offer you a tremendous opportunity for continuing education and actively encourages you to increase your knowledge and skills. You’ll be able to apply for advanced training in clinical medicine, pathology, earn a master’s in Public Health and many more. And as always, the Army covers the costs.

You can even decide how you want to serve in the Veterinary Corps — active duty or in the Army Reserve. Serving in the Army Reserve lets you still have a private practice, but you’ll train each month close to home and complete a two-week training exercise once a year. Whether you choose active duty or the Army Reserve, you will enjoy the privileges and respect of a commissioned officer on the Army health care team. A team of committed health care professionals.
