Military medicine concerns all medical matters affecting members of the armed forces, whether in combat or peacetime.

Military medical experts may be required;

  • in managing mass casualties in battlefield situations,
  • in preventing the spread of infectious diseases prevalent in military environments,
  • in researching and developing solutions to medical problems of military interest, or in providing general medical care to service members.

The rise of military medicine in the late 19th Century was one of the main factors in the development of widespread civilian medicine.

Some current research topics in the field of military medicine include the prevalence of mental health issues in the military, the examination of battle injuries sustained in operations in the Middle East, and the treatment of people exposed to chemical or nuclear weapons.
