            Work Environment

            In medical support, you have the most diverse range of work environments in the Navy. Your job will likely take you all over the world-and far out of your comfort zone.
            Hospital Corpsman (HM)
            As a Hospital Corpsman, you could be assigned to a Navy medical treatment facility, like an on-base hospital or clinic. You could also work on an aircraft carrier in the middle of the ocean, or a submarine in the depths of the sea. You will work alongside Navy nurses and other medical professionals to be trained as a skilled first responder, whether your skills are needed bedside or in the field.
            Hospital Corpsman Advanced Technical Field (HM-ATF)
            If you choose to go the Hospital Corpsman Advanced Technical Field route, you will work in extreme and sometimes dangerous conditions. From deep sea diving to combat missions to flying up in MH-60 Romeo helicopters, you will train outside the realm of conventional military forces to prepare for any mission. You may work independent of a physician or under supervision in this program.

            Hospital Corpsman (HM)
            Serving part-time as a Navy Reserve Sailor, your duties will be carried out during your scheduled drilling and training periods. During monthly drilling, Hospital Corpsmen in the Navy Reserve typically work at a location close to their homes.

            After Boot Camp, you'll report to Fort Sam Houston, TX, to attend "A" school for 14 weeks. Here, you'll develop a working knowledge of basic principles and techniques of patient care and first aid procedures. After Corpsman "A" School, HM-ATF candidates track to one of three advanced training paths:
            Special Amphibious Reconnaissance Corpsman pipeline (121 weeks long)
            • Areas of training include but are not limited to basic reconnaissance, airborne operations, combatant diving, demolitions, clinical diagnostics, advanced paramedical skills, Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), basic surgical anesthesia, basic veterinary medicine and basic dental exams Search and Rescue Medical Tech pipeline (27 weeks long)
              • Areas of training include but are not limited to advanced fluid resuscitation, administration and management of Advanced Life Support medications, use of emergency medical equipment, rescue and recovery devices and patient handling Medical Deep Sea Diving Tech pipeline (28 weeks long)

                  Post-Service Opportunities
                  There's no better way to begin a successful career in healthcare than by serving in the medical support division of America's Navy. You'll receive training in everything from surgery to radiology, physical therapy to respiratory medicine, and more. Beyond this, you'll have many opportunities to get the hands-on experience and credentials medical assistants require in the civilian world.

                  Hospital Corpsman (HM)
                  Most of what you do in the Navy Reserve is considered training. The basic Navy Reserve commitment involves training a minimum of one weekend a month (referred to as drilling) and two weeks a year (referred to as Annual Training) - or the equivalent.

                  Hospital Corpsmen in the Navy Reserve serve in an Enlisted role. Before receiving the ongoing professional training that comes with the job, initial training requirements must be met.

                  For current or former military Enlisted service members: Prior experience satisfies the initial Recruit Training requirement - so you will not need to go through Boot Camp again.

                  For those without prior military experience: You will need to meet the initial Recruit Training requirement by attending boot camp for seven to nine weeks in Great Lakes, IL. This training course will prepare you for service in the Navy Reserve and count as your first Annual Training.

                  Promotion opportunities are regularly available but competitive and based on performance. It's also important to note that specialized training received and work experience gained in the course of service can lead to valuable credentialing and occupational opportunities in related fields.
                  Post-Service Opportunities
                  There's no better way to begin a successful career in healthcare than by serving in the medical support division of America's Navy. You'll receive training in everything from surgery to radiology, physical therapy to respiratory medicine, and more. Beyond this..... click apply for full job details
