Application process: the first step is to contact a recruiter

The Army Recruiting Mission is divided by geography and mission.  Applicants should specifically seek out an SP healthcare recruiter.  (Once commissioned as officers, Army dietitians are assigned to the Army Medical Specialist or SP Corps.)  These recruiters are most familiar with the Army Medical Department and the U.S. Military-Baylor Master’s Program in Nutrition.  An applicant should contact the recruiter assigned to their local area, as described below.   Recruiters can also be accessed through  Specifically seek out an SP healthcare recruiter when contacting this site

 Army- Northeast Region is served by 1st Medical Recruiting Battalion.  The SP Healthcare Recruiter is CPT Yaoyao Zhu  This battalion serves the following areas: CT, DE, MA, ME, MD, NH, NY, PA, RI, VA, VT, WV, Washington DC, and also Americans living in Germany.
