Our Blog – 6th Medical Recruiting Battalion

Welcome to our blog.

We are the 6th Medical Recruiting Battalion and we are here to help medical, dental, veterinary and chaplain students and professionals become part of the Army-medicine family. Our area of responsibility includes the western third of the United States as well as part of the Pacific region, but we are happy to help you no matter where you live.

To accomplish this, our healthcare career counselors are constantly working with medical schools, and healthcare facilities to ensure those with the skills and motivation can become an Army Medical Department healthcare officer. Our no-pressure, healthcare-career counselors are happy to answer any questions you have about the benefits you can receive (full-tuition medical school scholarships with monthly stipends and student-loan repayment are two of the biggest) or about Army life in general. Also, they can tell you the difference between serving full-time in the Army or part-time in the Army Reserve.
