U.S. Army Medicine Civilian Corps Exhibiting at Behavioral Health Conferences in March
The Civilian Corps, a division of the U.S. Army Medical Command (MEDCOM), recruits nationwide to fill civilian medical and behavioral healthcare positions. In March, they will send Human Resources Specialists to exhibit at several behavioral health conferences.
These events include the APNA Clinical Psychopharmacology Institute West in San Diego, CA; the Current Psychiatry/AACP Psychiatry Update in Chicago, IL; the Psychotherapy Networker Symposium in Washington, D.C.; and the National Council for Behavioral Health Conference in Nashville, TN. A full list of events can be found at their Events page.
Civilians make up approximately 60% of the total Army Medicine workforce and are not subject to military requirements, such as enlistment or deployment though they do work alongside military counterparts at Army Medicine hospitals and clinics. Civilian personnel also enjoy competitive salaries, health and life insurance and access to state-of-the-art training and equipment in Army facilities.
“We are in constant pursuit of our Nation’s top talent to fill our critical vacancies. We are looking for the best and brightest candidates who are interested in joining our high-performing healthcare team; there are opportunities throughout the United States as well as overseas in places such as Germany, Italy, Japan, and Korea. By filling positions with our country’s most highly qualified candidates, the MEDCOM Civilian Corps can continue providing the best quality of care to U.S. Army uniformed service members, retired service members, their families and other eligible beneficiaries,” says Mr. Oscar Bocanegra, Director of Civilian Human Resources, Headquarters U.S. Army Medical Command.
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 a short drive from major metropolitan areas.
A career as a healthcare professional at a MEDCOM facility affords very different daily experiences when compared to roles at a private practice or community hospital. Army civilian employees have praised their flexible work schedules, lower amounts of collateral work and the ability to spend more time focused on their patients to provide the best possible treatment.
MEDCOM recruitment specialists are looking forward to speaking with qualified candidates at events they will be attending this month and beyond. Candidates can always browse positions and submit their resume or Curriculum Vitae at www.civilianmedicaljobs.com.
