Military medical jobs about mission

Demand for civilian health care professionals, such as doctors, registered nurses, dentists and certain allied health professionals such as clinical psychologists, will grow by double-digit percentages from now until 2020, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. The armed forces, including the U.S. Navy, are also facing a critical need in these vital areas.

Beyond all the advantages of life as a civilian health care professional, a medical career in the Navy offers travel, adventure, and the uncommon opportunity to practice on ships or aircraft carriers, working with cutting-edge technology. Navy health care professionals can pursue their true passion to care for others and focus on the finer points of medicine without the financial and business complications of a private practice.

Plus, financial aid is available to help qualified candidates pay for certain professional schools.

Physicians: The Navy has job opportunities for doctors in more than 30 specialties and subspecialties, including general surgery, orthopedic surgery and anesthesiology.

Registered Nurses: Serving in many clinical areas, Navy Nurses meet critical professional nursing needs during wartime and peace. Additionally, they may receive education and additional training in many nursing specialties.

Dentists: Navy Dentists care for Sailors, and they care for citizens of third-world countries who may think of dental care as a luxury. They serve in more than 250 facilities around the world, both on the ground and aboard ships.

Clinical Psychologists: Navy Clinical Psychologists counsel service members whose emotional well-being is as important as their physical health.
