The Civilian Corps of the United States Army Medical Command (MEDCOM) will host its fourth virtual career fair of 2012 to continue its vigorous efforts of creating awareness of medical career opportunities available for civilian healthcare professionals. Interested individuals may attend the interactive virtual career fair from June 11-15, 2012 at www.civilianmedicaljobs.com/webfair to explore international opportunities with the Army’s Educational and Developmental Intervention Services (EDIS) Program.
“The EDIS virtual career fair is one of MEDCOM’s several hiring initiatives scheduled this year, all of which will ultimately lead to the hiring of qualified medical professionals,” says Dr. Joseph Harrison, Chief, Recruitment and Retention, Headquarters U.S. Army Medical Command, Civilian Human Resources Division. “The upcoming virtual career fair will continue our strong efforts to make this year one of new opportunities and new hires.”
The Civilian Corps is seeking early childhood intervention professionals to work in a variety of positions on interdisciplinary teams serving Army families in accordance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA Part C).
