The Flag of Indian Army Medical Corps symbolizes its Primary Mission.
Army Medical Corps provides support during the Battle, while preparing for the Battle, and to keep the Army Battle-Ready at all times. The lives of the seriously wounded depend upon the professional skills of the Medical Officer and the medical personnel deployed at the Battalion level. The greatest challenge for Army Medical Corps is to place the best trained team in the most ‘Forward’ area where the test for the greatest ability is made. Army Medical Corps must apportion training time of the Medical Officer so that a maximum training occurs in the Combat Zone. In the Art of Battle Field Medicine, no job is a small job.
