Medical Reserve: Expand your healing heart and your professional potential

Medical reserve(BPT) – For many, medicine isn’t just a job, it’s a mission. As a health care professional, you know how rewarding caring for others can be. In the world of Navy Health Care, you can continue your everyday practice – even as you move beyond the routine. This includes helping others around the world at sea or at top military medical facilities, where you’re exposed to advanced training and technology so progressive, the civilian sector may not even be aware of it yet.

Serving part-time as a health care professional in the Navy Reserve, you will encounter unique experiences that will improve your skills and increase your knowledge. You’ll find a level of camaraderie and teamwork that is hard to experience in the civilian world. You can do all this while working close to home (or around the world) according to a schedule that fits your life.

Some of the opportunities in the Medical Reserve include: Working behind the scenes or on the front line of health care delivery; caring for the physical or mental health needs of service members or those in a third world country hit by catastrophe; and researching a better way of life or guarding against a threat to human health. It’s how thousands of people perform their Navy Health Care jobs each day.

If you pursue this profession, you will:

* Use the latest techniques and technology in state-of-the-art facilities, such as a national naval hospital

* Collaborate with skilled, dedicated colleagues using unrivaled resources

* Support medical relief and education efforts around the globe

* Take on a leadership role among leaders, giving you unrivaled management experience

Few occupations will earn more trust and respect than those related to health care. And in the Navy, your nation’s admiration is a validation you’ll experience on a whole new level.
