Team Info
Team Jutsu

The Medic Corps (医療部隊, Iryō Butai) is a subdivision of Konohagakure's medical-nin organisation and hospital. These shinobi generally work at the hospital full-time, and their roles are similar to those of field medical-nin in that they are deployed to aid the comrades who are out on missions. However, unlike field medical-nin that normally get assigned to a four-man-team to serve in that capacity, they move as an independent team comprised solely of medical-nin.

These shinobi are under the directions of 'Captains'. One of these captains, Nonō Yakushi was stated to have found Kabuto Yakushi after the Battle of Kikyō Pass.[1] This story, however, may not be true although it was fabricated by Orochimaru.[2] Medic Corps shinobi can be seen throughout the duration of the Chūnin Exams, and a team was also sent after the Sasuke Recovery Team.[3]
