The Reserve Physician Corps (also known as the "RPC") was an Umbrella subsidiary. Operating as their equivalent to Doctors Without Borders, the RPC overburdened hospitals with extra staff.
The Corps provided a surgeon for Mahmoud al-Rashan, which led to complications after a botched surgery. In October 2002, they were ordered into San Francisco, California to counter the T-virus outbreak after an infected Umbrella employee left the nearby Raccoon City.
