INCIRLIK AIR BASE, Turkey --
The Biomedical Sciences Corps is the most diverse officer corps in the Air Force Medical Service with 17 distinct specialties. At Incirlik, there are experts from 10 of those career fields including: Optometry, Clinical Psychology, Clinical Social Work, Bioenvironmental Engineering, Public Health, Dietician, Pharmacy, Clinical Laboratory, Physical Therapy and Physician Assistants.
The corps is made up of a team of about 2,400 officers leading the way, and is supported by 5,800 enlisted members in parallel career fields.
In addition to specialty roles within our medical treatment facilities, BSC officers are embedded within operational units, serve at every level of medical command, and lead on staffs of the MAJCOMs, Forward Operating Agencies and Headquarters Air Force. Additionally, the Biomedical Sciences Corps is heavily invested in research and a host of other vital roles to meet the demands of the Air Force mission.
Please join the 39th MDG in celebrating the Biomedical Sciences Corps and recognizing the contributions of these outstanding men and women, who dedicate their lives to improving health, maximizing performance and providing trusted medical care to support our most vital resource, our Airmen.
