As a leading staffing source in the Army Medicine workforce, the U.S. Army Medicine Civilian Corps recognizes PTSD Awareness Month with persistent recruitment efforts, seeking qualified candidates to staff the Behavioral Health Service Line as well as other positions worldwide.
The Behavioral Health Service Line (BHSL) focuses on educating, screening and treating mental health issues, including PTSD. Behavioral Health programs such as Embedded Behavioral Health (EBH), Patient Centered Medical homes and School Behavioral Health provide convenient access to care for Soldiers and their families where they are located. Army Medicine now has several established EBH clinics across the force and continues to grow this effective behavioral health treatment model.
“The Civilian Corps is honored to work alongside our military counterpart to efficiently provide all health care needs, especially PTSD treatment, to Soldiers and their families,” says Dr. Joseph Harrison, Jr., Chief, Recruitment and Retention, Headquarters U.S. Army Medical Command, Civilian Human Resources Division.
Civilians, roughly 45,000, make up approximately 60% of the total Army Medicine workforce providing the day-to-day care for Army Soldiers, beneficiaries and their families at Army hospitals and clinics worldwide. Civilian providers continue to make a difference in Army Medicine Behavioral Health by providing preventative and effective treatment. The Civilian Corps has more than 2,500 job openings in different medical, dental and behavioral health professions. Behavioral Health positions available include Psychiatrists, Clinical Psychologists, Licensed Clinical Social Workers, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners and more.
The Civilian Corps provides rewarding career opportunities for civilians to practice their medical specialty while serving those who serve their county. Employees are not subject to military requirements, such as enlistment or deployment, and receive excellent benefits, including flexible work schedules, competitive salaries, health insurance and access to state-of-the-art training and equipment.
