1-12. POLICIES OF THE ARMY MEDICAL DEPARTMENT
The following policies are in force in the AMEDD:
a. No member of the AMEDD is to be assigned to perform professional duties
unless that person is qualified to perform those duties. If the duties to which a member
of the AMEDD is assigned involve professional work that is the same as or is similar to
that usually performed in civil life by a member of a learned profession, the member
must possess qualifications by education, training, or experience equal to or similar to
those usually required for members of that profession, unless prevented by the
exigencies of the situation.
b. An officer of the AMEDD is not to engage in private practice without his
commander's approval. This policy does not prohibit charitable practice voluntarily
performed for the benefit of institutionalized persons or for the recognized nonprofit
charitable groups. (The officer performs these voluntary actions as a private citizen and
the Government assumes no responsibility for his actions.) Neither does this policy
prohibit emergency procedures necessary to save lives or prevent undue suffering.
