Navy Relocates Medicine Education and Training to JBSA-Fort Sam Houston

The Navy celebrated a milestone Friday when its point of accountability for all Navy Medicine training relocated to Fort Sam Houston from its former headquarters in Jacksonville, Fla..

The relocation stems from the Navy Surgeon General’s vision of streamlining Navy Medicine into a more efficient and responsive organization.

Initially, 12 military and civilian personnel will be assigned to N-METC’s new location. The opening of the facility comes a year after the Navy’s ‘A’ School, the Hospital Corps School, relocated to Fort Sam as part of the 2005 BRAC order.

The network of Navy medical personnel around the world deploy with Sailors and Marines worldwide, providing mission support aboard ship, in the air, under the sea and on the battlefield.
