Saving lives on and off the battlefield.

Medical specialists work firsthand with other medics and doctors to treat combat emergencies, stabilize wounded Soldiers and prepare them for evacuation. Medics are trained in triage, CPR, basic life support and emergency techniques.

The medical field also offers opportunities to conduct clinical tests as a laboratory specialist or dental assistant. During peacetime, Guard medical specialists offer much-needed international humanitarian and emergency response to the victims of local disaster.
