About 45,000--roughly 60 percent of the total Army medicine workforce--are civilians. Providing the day-to-day care for soldiers, beneficiaries, and their families, these healthcare professionals provide preventive and treatment services. This includes behavioral health services where the U.S. Army Medicine Civilian Corps seeks behavioral healthcare professionals including psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, licensed clinical social workers, and psychiatric nurse practitioners.

Within the Civilian Corps., more than 2,500 positions that span 25 different medical, dental, and behavioral health professions are open in multiple locations worldwide. 

“We continue to pursue strong civilian recruitment efforts so that Army Medicine may address all health care needs quickly, effectively and efficiently,” says Dr. Joseph Harrison, Jr., Chief, Recruitment and Retention, Headquarters U.S. Army Medical Command, Civilian Human Resources Division.
