Being a medical officer in the Commissioned Corps isn't just a job—it's a calling. You're on the front lines of public health: fighting life-threatening diseases at home and abroad, responding to emergencies, conducting research, developing national health policies, and treating patients in underserved and disadvantaged communities. Officers are part of an elite team that fills essential public health leadership roles within the Nation's Federal Government agencies and programs. You'll share a sense of camaraderie and common purpose that is unlike any experience in the private sector. The Commissioned Corps will give you variety, multidisciplinary experience, the opportunity to serve your country, and the satisfaction of making a real difference. And you'll enjoy excellent benefits and work/life balance.
"The Corps offers you a chance to work in diverse assignments and significantly improve the health of people in the United States, as well as populations around the world."
