What Government Healthcare Jobs are Available

There is a major job shortage in the nation today, even among those who have high end degrees and certifications. As you've probably figured out, even though you have the education and the experience, you might still end up working at the local fast food joint. Sometimes it seems to be a matter of who you know rather than establishing your own reputation and getting into the field you actually want to be in. Luckily there are a few alternatives that you could try.


If you have looked everywhere for a job and seem to have failed, then perhaps you could take a look at the government. There are many people that would rather not have anything to do with the government, but in all honesty it is one of the largest hosts of healthcare jobs at this very moment. So with that being said, let's take a few of the positions that may be open at the moment.


There is also the Department of Health and Human Services that may employ you in the Public Health Corps. There are 11 branches to work for, including the FDA and the Center for Disease Control. Doctors in all fields are needed for this work, so if you want some excitement and decent pay, then it would benefit you to check out this opportunity.


The Military is always hiring health care workers. Typically you will find that doctors are needed to work in larger hospitals, or even directly on the base. In some cases it would be helpful to actually enter the military and take the training that they offer, but if you are good at what you do and have the right certifications, then you can simply enter as a civilian.




The Department of State is yet another arm of the government that always needs physicians of some type. They have members that leave the country quite often and they will need personal doctors and nurses on staff. This is a high profile job, and obviously the requirements will be through the roof.


The government has created some healthcare programs for the elderly and the poor, and these are Medicare or Medicaid. Doctors and nurses are always needed in these organizations, and if you have ever served in the government before, you might find that this job comes to you easily. Well, at least the hiring part will come easily, we cannot speak for the rest of it.


As you can see, there are jobs out there, but they are probably in places that you didn't think to look. Once you figure out where you want to work and what position you want to be in, an entire world of possibilities will be open to you, and you will be one step closer to getting the job of your dreams.

 

Also, in case you are wondering what type of resume is required to apply to health care government positions, you will need a Federal resume and can't use your medical resume as is.
