The Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps (RCAMC) was an administrative corps of the Canadian Army.

The Militia Medical Service was established in 1899. The Militia Medical Service was redesignated as a Corps on 2 July, 1904; the regular component as "Permanent Active Militia Medical Corps" and the militia component as "Militia Army Medical Corps in 1904. Both components were redesignated "Canadian Army Medical Corps" on 1 May, 1909. The regular component was redesignated "The Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps" on 3 November, 1919; the militia component "Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps" on 29 April, 1936. The two elements were finally united under one name on 22 March, 1948 as "The Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps".

The badge of the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps consists of a two crossing maple stems and maple leaves with a Kings Crown on top, with the text "Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps" on a ribbon at the bottom. At the centre of the two maple stems is a rod of Asclepius consisting of a serpent entwined around a staff.

After the Second World War, a series of coloured berets were adopted, with other arms and services wearing midnight blue berets, with a large coloured "flash" in corps colours – dull cherry for the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps
