Modernisation and the Future

The rapid technical changes in the past two decades and the commitments of the Corps to provide a cradle-to-grave service have necessitated diversification in the fields hitherto unexplored in many military medical services e.g. coronary artery surgery, renal transplantation, malignant diseases treatment etc. The time is now for the corps to take over commitment in the geriatric field also. The Army Medical Corps along with its affiliated sister services in the Navy and Air Force are the major facility with the Govt to affect its welfare activity for serving and retired defence personnel.
