Medical Center of Excellence Unveils Its Medical Platoon Doctrine Publication

In April of 2020, the Commanding General, Combined Arms Center, directed all Army Centers of Excellence to develop bottom-up doctrine. What is bottom-up doctrine you might ask? For Army Medicine, it is simply the tip of Asclepius’s staff, the Medical Platoon. With just a little over six months to execute, the U.S. Army Medical Center of Excellence Doctrine Literature Division put its collective heads together to tackle this daunting task. The commander’s intent was clear: provide platoon-level doctrine that can be handed to new platoon leaders and platoon sergeants as they graduate from the Basic Officer Leader Course and Noncommissioned Officer Senior Leader Course in order to better prepare them to lead their platoons upon arrival at their next duty station. https://www.army.mil/article/241082
