The European Medical Command (EMC) is a planned medical command centre in support of the military operations of the European Union, as part of the Permanent Structured Cooperation (PESCO).[1]

The EMC will provide the EU with a permanent medical capability to support operations abroad, including medical resources and a rapidly deployable medical task force. The EMC will also provide medical evacuation facilities, triage and resuscitation, treatment and holding of patients until they can be returned to duty, and emergency dental treatment. It will also contribute to harmonising medical standards, certification and legal (civil) framework conditions.[2]
