The medical planner is able to provide the best possible Army Health System for all Army operations by carefully applying operational medicine doctrine and principles. The Army Health System provides support to forces deployed across the full range of military operations in all operational arrangements. The Army Health System is a complex system of highly synchronized, interrelated, and interdependent systems comprised of ten medical functions. The medical functions align with medical disciplines and specialty training with the capabilities required to provide state-of-the-art care to Soldiers regardless of where they are deployed or assigned.
