Health Care

Working behind the scenes or on the front line of health-care delivery. Caring for the physical or mental health needs of servicemembers or those in a third world country hit by catastrophe. 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.

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.

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 teamwork that some say is missing in the civilian world. And you can do all of this while working close to home – and according to a schedule that fits your life.
