The Expert Field Medical Badge (EFMB) is a special skills badge intended to recognize field medical personnel who attain a high degree of professional skill and proficiency through exceptional competence and outstanding performance. It is earned only by those who can expertly perform in a simulated combat environment, both soldier common tasks and medical tasks.
The badge is meant to promote confidence and provide tangible recognition of personnel who apply the principles of basic medical care in a field environment. The EFMB is one of the most challenging badges Soldiers compete for with only three percent of the Army medical community wearing the badge. It is widely considered a crowning achievement for Soldiers within medical career management fields.
For all 68 series AOC and MOS there is no better time to earn their EFMB. XVIIIth Airborne Corps is sponsoring the semi-annual EFMB from May 5 through May 18.
