Government medical facilities—such as veterans hospitals, correctional facilities, and Indian Health Services centers—frequently are in need of medical professionals from a range of clinical backgrounds. Part of the Consilium mission involves bridging gaps in healthcare access by connecting medical providers with facilities that serve patients who lack access to healthcare resources. When you put your medical expertise to work in the government sector, each day is a new opportunity to make an impact on communities in need.
Government Medicine and Your Personal Mission
You probably dedicated your life to medicine because you felt a calling to help people live longer, healthier, happier lives. While many medical professionals feel compelled to give back to the community outside the sphere of traditional clinical practice, they do not always consider how government assignments might help fulfill that mission. If the following questions align with your personal or professional objectives, government contract work may provide just the opportunity you have been seeking:
- Would you find value in using your training to support veterans, active duty military members, and military families?
- Has the reported dearth of sufficient medical care in correctional facilities nationwide sparked a desire to provide compassionate care for a frequently overlooked population?
- Would you gain personal satisfaction from providing accessible, culturally-competent medical care to members of federally-recognized Tribes and Alaska Natives?
