The mission of the U.S. Public Health Service is to protect, promote and advance the health and safety of our Nation.
Physicians in the Public Health Service
Being a medical officer in the Commissioned Corps isn't just a job ? it's a calling. You're on the frontlines 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 National 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.
