Honoring the Legacy and Preserving the History of Military Medicine
What is a WarDoc?
WarDocs are personnel of all Services, ranks, and Corps dedicated to the medical care of fellow comrades in arms. They are affectionately called "Doc"—an earned sign of respect, trust, and confidence both on and off the battlefield
Honor the legacy, preserve the oral history, and showcase career opportunities, unique expeditionary experiences, and achievements of Military Medicine. Foster patriotism and pride in Who we are, What we do, and, most importantly, How we serve Our Patients, the DoD, and Our Nation.
We will Honor the Legacy and Preserve the History of Military Medicine
WarDocs captures the history and honors the legacy of military medicine. Military medicine has served Service Members, their Families, and Veterans and greatly benefited civilian healthcare. Military medicine’s significant contributions deserve recognition and may get lost amongst shifting priorities and immediate challenges. WarDocs makes conveniently accessible inspirational careers, lessons, and innovative individual and organizational leadership solutions that have improved healthcare across the spectrum of military and civilian medicine. Highlighting military medical accomplishments in patient care, leadership, and research is essential for future generations to continually improve medical care on and off the battlefield.
