Employment Benefits at the U.S. Army Medicine Civilian Corps


March 29, 2018 - Fort Sam Houston, Texas The Civilian Corps, a branch of the U.S. Army Medical Command (MEDCOM), is sharing information with medical and behavioral health care professionals about the benefits and work-life balance enjoyed by its civilian employees.


Civilian Corps employees work alongside military counterparts at MEDCOM to provide the best quality of care to U.S. Army uniformed service members, the retired service members, their families and other eligible beneficiaries. Civilians make up approximately 60% of the total Army Medicine workforce and are not subject to military requirements, such as enlistment or deployment.


MEDCOM comprises one of the largest healthcare networks in the world. It operates worldwide at more than 70 healthcare facilities and clinics, many of which are located at military bases within the United States. A large percentage of these bases are in rural areas, but function as self-sufficient entities. Low living costs make them excellent places to retire or start a family. Additionally, most are only hours away from major metropolitan areas.


Working as a medical or behavioral health care professional at a MEDCOM facility affords very different daily experiences from those at a private practice or community hospital. Civilian Corps employees have praised the aspects of flexible work schedules, lower amounts of collateral work and ability to spend more time focused on patient-related issues.


Civilian Corps employees also enjoy competitive salaries, health and life insurances and access to state-of-the-art training and equipment at U.S. Army hospitals and clinics.


“Hiring and placing the most qualified practitioners and clinicians to serve MEDCOM has always been our top priority,” says Rosalinda Jenkins, Chief, Recruitment and Retention, Headquarters U.S. Army Medical Command, Civilian Human Resources Division. “We will continue our standard of excellence in supporting our employees with industry-leading benefits.”
