The History of the U.S. Army Medical Service Corps traces the evolution of the corps from its origins during the American Revolution, through its stages of growth and transformation into a separate professional element of the military medical establishment in 1947 and its steady progress during the postwar and Cold War years, to its status in 1994. The lessons of the Medical Service Corps' history are rooted in America's wartime experiences, and they are important ones for future leaders to learn for ensuring continued progress for MSC officers who represent the growth in medical science and military medical operations and administration.
