On Saturday March 26th, 2016 the Civilian Corps of the U.S. Army Medical Command celebrates 20 years of service to our country. 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.
Civilians have been part of the Army since the Continental Congress established a medical department on July 27, 1775. Over the nearly 240-year history of Army Medicine, civilian roles have continued to evolve. Today, civilians make up approximately 60% of the Army Medicine workforce.
“The Civilian Corps is honored to work alongside our uniformed military counterparts to provide 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 2016 to help staff Army hospitals and clinics worldwide with the finest healthcare professionals available.”
The Army Medicine workforce of nearly 45,000 civilian team members provides day-to-day care for Army soldiers, beneficiaries and their families at Army hospitals and clinics worldwide. The Civilian Corps has hundreds of job openings in 25 different medical, dental and behavioral health professions.
