Many former active duty personnel who are now U.S. Army Medicine Civilian Corps employees often state, “Going from active duty service to civilian service is the right career move without a doubt.”
For many, working as a civilian in Army Medicine offers a rewarding career experience simply because of the population served. They are true heroes, they are warriors, they are compliant and they are part of the bigger team. The exceptional benefits, well-managed operations and job security add to the many reasons why civilian employees appreciate the work they do every day.
The Civilian Corps of the U.S. Army Medical Command works persistently to find the right individuals to staff the Behavioral Health Service Line. “We focus our recruitment efforts on staffing all of Army Medicine with high quality civilian employees,” says Dr. Joseph Harrison, Jr., Chief, Recruitment and Retention, Headquarters U.S. Army Medical Command, Civilian Human Resources Division. “We are honored to work alongside our military counterpart to efficiently provide all healthcare needs, including Behavioral Health, to a unique population.”
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.
