United States Army Medical Department Captains Career Course

The United States Army Medical Department (AMEDD) Captains Career Course (CCC) is an Officer Advance Course (OAC) taught at Fort Sam Houston, Texas that provides graduate level leadership training for all six special officer branches (corps) in the AMEDD.

The AMEDD Captains Career Course is designed to train officers to lead company or equivalent-sized organizations and serve successfully in U.S. Army staff positions. Graduates are prepared for subsequent assignments by learning the leader, tactical, and technical tasks, including the supporting knowledge and skills necessary to support joint operations across the full spectrum of military operations.


In 1994 the AMEDD Director of Personnel raised the issue of a combined, all-corps AMEDD Officer Advance Course (OAC) to promote consistency in education for AMEDD officers competing for command positions.

The AMEDD Center and School (AMEDDC&S) initiated the reengineered course in 1996. The course consisted of a distance learning phase followed by ten weeks of resident training (forty-five days all corps and one week for corps-specific training).

In 2001, the Commanding General of the AMEDDC&S at the time further reduced the length of the course to nine weeks of resident training (forty-three days all corps and two days for corps-specific training).
