They will be called on to assist the army surgeon in the professional appraisal, procurement, and appointment of professional consultants to local medical installations; in the supervision of civilian medical consultation in class 1 Army medical installations; and in other matters pertaining to the maintenance of the highest standards of professional performance within the command.
