Robert Sousa, the Air Force Reserve deputy command surgeon and an MSC officer by trade. "Nurses and doctors train to care for people. MSCs train to support and guide them administratively. Generally speaking, MSCs are your administrative experts."One of the educational conditions toward becoming a commissioned officer and earning the "MSC" title is holding an undergraduate, or graduate, degree in a health or business- related field, like health services, business administration, or healthcare management. "We come from a variety of civilian and military backgrounds and serve as leaders in the military medical system," states Col. Sousa, "MSC officers are the Airmen other medical career fields look to for military mentoring and professional military guidance”" To accomplish the Reserve medical mission, traditional Reserve MSCs and air reserve technicians serve in a variety of roles in aeromedical evacuation, aeromedical staging, the Expeditionary Medical System, en route care, and aerospace medicine." Air Force Reserve MSC officers’ duties include areas such as managing staff and programs, setting policies and budgets and handling mission- specific assets.
