February is American Heart Month, a time when the Civilian Corps of the U.S. Army Medical Command (MEDCOM) raises awareness of the number one leading cause of death in the United States: heart disease. Prevention of this disease is important for the readiness of the U.S. Army.
Medical professionals at Army hospitals all over the world are focusing their efforts on improving long-term health of soldiers and their families. Healthy lifestyle choices by soldiers and their families will not only decrease the risk factors for heart disease but also, as a result, lower long-term costs to the military healthcare system as a whole.
The U.S. Army Medicine Civilian Corps’ mission is to promote, sustain and enhance soldier health along with delivering leading edge health services to these warriors and military families. The Civilian Corps employs doctors, physicians, nurses and other medical professionals who are fully licensed with years of experience. “We recognize American Heart Month as a time to reinforce awareness of heart disease worldwide. Our civilian medical professionals work tirelessly to ensure optimum health among our service members and their families,” says Dr. Joseph Harrison, Chief, Recruitment and Retention, Headquarters U.S. Army Medical Command, Civilian Human Resources.
Employees with the U.S. Army Medicine Civilian Corps benefit from competitive salaries, generous paid time off, and extensive health, dental, and vision insurance options.
The U.S. Army Medicine Civilian Corps is actively recruiting civilian medical professionals and behavioral health specialties to work in U.S. Army hospitals and clinics worldwide. In March, the Army Medicine Civilian Corps will attend job fairs in Keystone, CO, Las Vegas, NV and New Orleans, LA. The Civilian Corps currently has hundreds of open positions in more than 70 global locations. For more information and to search current job openings, please visit http://www.civilianmedicaljobs.com.
