Training

In the U.S. Army, the case diversity psychologists experience in caring for Soldiers and their families far exceeds the medical care environment of the private sector. As an Army Medical Service Corps officer, you'll have access to the most sophisticated technologies, methods and techniques, the opportunity to consult with experts in both the military and private sector, plus exceptional professional growth opportunities, including continuing education courses, seminars and conferences. Psychiatrists may even serve as faculty at one of our prestigious graduate medical education programs.

Helpful Skills

The normal environment of an Army Medical Service Corps officer's work requires time-sensitive problem analysis with an accurate, sound and immediate decision. Ability to operate under stress, apply critical thinking skills, make decisions and translate these skills to battlefield conditions is critical to medical and mission success.

Effective patient care requires the proper balance between technical skills and the ability to apply the appropriate treatment or procedure at the right moment. Army Medical Service Corps officers possess expert knowledge in their area of concentration, patient management, and general support and coordination principles. Psychologists gain this knowledge through continuing medical education and experience sustained by mentoring, additional institutional training, continuous self-development and progressive levels of assignments within their specialty.

Compensation

In addition to the many privileges that come with being an officer on the U.S. Army health care team, you'll be rewarded with:

* 30 days of paid vacation earned annually

Future Civilian Careers

As you advance through your medical career, you will be looking for experiences that blend teaching, research and clinical excellence to best prepare you for unique and challenging opportunities in medicine. Our psychologists excel in clinical, research, operational, academic and health administration arenas. Many have worked in more than one career track throughout their time in the U.S. Army and have held leadership positions ahead of their private sector counterparts.
