Description
  
  
  
  
The health and readiness of our Navy and Marine Corps family entrusted to our care is Navy Medicine’s number one priority. This section gives you the tools you need to put your health first, because your medical readiness is critical to the Navy and Marine Corps missions.
  
Navy Medicine is in the readiness business, and all of our efforts support just that – the readiness of our Navy and Marine Corps. We are forward deployed and globally engaged no matter the environment and regardless of the challenge. Whether it’s on above, below or under the sea, Navy Medicine is there to ensure Sailors and Marines are able to complete the mission.
  
  
Navy and Marine Corps health care providers are distinguished by five distinct corps. Each corps is comprised of personnel who specialize in particular health care fields, such as nursing or dentistry. Together, these corps represent Navy Medicine’s active duty and reserve service members who ensure the health and well-being of every Sailor, Marine and Navy Medicine beneficiary around the world. The Navy Medicine corps work side by side with Navy civilians who supplement our military medical force in all areas from administrative work to medical professionals.
  
From Navy Medicine’s headquarters just outside of Washington, D.C., to any of the military treatment facilities, research labs, training facilities, or support activities around the globe, we’re constantly working to ensure our Sailors and Marines are healthy and ready to do our nation’s work. These photos, articles and transcripts and publications highlight the work we do to support a medically ready force and ready medical force.
  
For many aspiring health care professionals, debt is an inevitable reality on the way to establishing a successful practice. This is not true as a participant in the Health Professions Scholarship Program (HPSP), Financial Assistance Program (FAP) or the Nurse Candidate Program (NCP). If you are a medical, dental, clinical psychology, nursing or optometry student, resident, or a practicing professional facing these issues, the Navy can help.
