ARMY PROGRAM FOR STUDENT TRAINING
In order to assure the Army the annual loss replacements for medical, dental and veterinary officers, the Army Specialized Training Division has been directed to train a sufficient number of enlisted men, who, on receipt of the appropriate degree in medicine, dentistry and veterinary medicine, may be appointed in the Medical, Dental or Veterinary Corps, Army of the United States. Such training will include both a preprofessional and a professional phase and as far as possible will be continuous. To this end, basic military training will not be required of enlisted men of the Enlisted Reserve Corps who are bona fide preprofessional and professional students and who, when called to active duty, are finally selected for premedical or medical training under the Army Specialized Training Program.
