Biomedical Sciences Corps

The Biomedical Sciences Corps’ roots date back to 1917 when the Sanitary Corps was established to combat infectious diseases. The Army Medical Administrative Corps followed three years later. In 1949, the Air Force Medical Service was officially established.

The Air Force Medical Service continued to expand over the next two decades and in 1965, the Biomedical Sciences Corps was born. Over the past 58 years, the BSC has continued to expand its range of personnel to include a wide variety of medically trained professionals.

BSC is one of the most diverse corps in the Air Force Medical Service, with more than 2,400 officers, 5,800 enlisted members, and 1,000 civilians covering 13 distinct professions under one banner.
