On Thursday, March 26, 2015, the Civilian Corps of the U.S. Army Medical Command celebrates 19 years since the first public recognition by the Surgeon General of the first Corps Chief of the Army Medical Department Civilian Corps. Known as “an integral and inseparable component” of Army Medicine, the Civilian Corps provides the highest quality medical, dental and behavioral health care to Army Soldiers, beneficiaries and their families.

Though civilians have been an essential part of the U.S. Army Medical Command since its beginning during the Revolutionary War over 238 years ago, their duties have evolved over time. Now, making up approximately 60% of the Army Medical Command workforce, the Civilian Corps has made itself a critical component of the Army’s overall strength.

“The Civilian Corps is honored to work alongside our military counterparts providing world class health care,” says Dr. Joseph Harrison, Jr., Chief, Recruitment and Retention, Headquarters U.S. Army Medical Command, Civilian Human Resources Division. “We continue to diligently pursue strong recruitment efforts in 2015 to help staff Army hospitals and clinics worldwide with the best health care professionals available.”

With nearly 45,000 civilian team members, the Army Medicine workforce provides the day-to-day care for Army service members, beneficiaries and their families at Army hospitals and clinics worldwide. The Civilian Corps has more than 2,500 job openings in 25 different medical, dental and behavioral health professions.
