The Medical Core, or "Medical Corps", is a part of the Federal Armed Services in which trained military personnel are responsible for providing first aid and frontline trauma care on the battlefield, as well as more serious treatment behind the frontlines. They are also responsible for providing continuing medical care in the absence of a readily available physician, including care for disease and non battle injury.
The Medical Corps is the force within Federal Armed Services charged with the training and deployment of Medical personnel along with relevant equipment. The Medical Corps' most notable units are those of Combat Medics whom are regularly seen along Mobile Infantry units. It functions alongside both the Mobile Infantry and the Fleet.
In the immediate aftermath of the Meteor Attack on Buenos Aires the Medical Corps was deployed to help rescue and treat survivors. With the beginning of the First Bug War the Medical Corps was attached to the offensive Federal Armed Services invading the Arachnid Quarantine Zone. Medics of the Medical Corps were spread out and attached to all the Mobile Infantry units and to Fleet. They were present during all the battles and engagements of the war.
When the Second Bug War began with Arachnids attacks on Federation colonies the Medical Corps was put back into action treating the wounded. After Roku San was lost during the Battle of Roku San a detachment of the Medical Corps returned to the ruins of the Military Assistance Base looking for survivors. During this Colonel Johnny Rico, a detachment of his troopers, and several civilians were rescued. It is possible that the Medical Corps also rescued General Dix Hauser whom was also present at the Battle, but this is unclear as it is never stated if he escaped from the Base before it was completely overrun or if rescued after the Victorious Arachnid forces withdrew.
There are two sub-branches within the Medical Corps:
- Starship Troopers
- Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation
- Starship Troopers 3: Marauder
- Starship Troopers: Invasion
