Medical Education and Training Campus

6/19/2012 - FORT SAM HOUSTON, Texas - Navy Rear Adm. Bob Kiser, commandant of the Medical Education and Training Campus, concluded an exemplary 38-year navy career with a retirement ceremony on Fort Sam Houston, Texas, June 15.

Kiser became a part of METC history when he arrived as the first commandant in May 2010, ultimately shaping the way for the Department of Defense's new enlisted medical training center to become the largest integrated medical training facility in DoD history.

Under Kiser's leadership, the campus went from initial operating capability to full operating capability within 15 months. Throughout this process the tri-service medical education and training community was bolstered to ensure the sailors, marines, soldiers, airmen, and coast guardsmen under his charge set the highest standards of professional performance and conduct, shaping the way ahead for enlisted military medical education and training operations of the future.

Vice Adm. Matthew Nathan, surgeon general of the Navy and chief, Bureau of Medicine and Surgery, hosted the ceremony and spoke of Kiser's accomplishments, camaraderie, and friendship.

"Who do you pick to come down from the Navy and be the ambassador for this amazing joint venture? This venture that brings Army, Air Force, Navy together under the same confines, " asked Nathan.
