Benefits of a Military Setting

Reasons why docs choose civilian military roles include lifestyle considerations as well as vocational aspirations, such as……

Strict Schedules – the military has a propensity of starting and ending on time. This is a 40 hour/week position with no nights, no weekends, no on call

Professional Working Environment – strong emphasis on quality patient care and remarkable colleagues, both civilian and active duty

No Insurance or Back Office Issues – everyone is covered by Tricare, making paperwork a matter of the software learning curve

No Malpractice – medical malpractice is covered by an Act of Congress, Title 10

Manageable Caseload – Primary Care Physicians, for example, see patients every 20 minutes on average

No Local Licensure Required – physicians can work on a military base with a license from any U.S. State or Territory

Focus: Patient Care (Primary Care Physicians see patients every 20 minutes)
Reward: Opportunity to give back
