If you're a licensed psychologist, the U.S. Public Health Service wants you—to join the Commissioned Corps and help service members and their families cope with the challenges following service in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Psychologists who receive a commission and serve at a military facility will not be deployed overseas, but will earn comparable pay to military officers, and benefits such as free health care, tax-free housing allowances, commissary privileges and retirement benefits.
Through an agreement worked out between the Department of Defense and the PHS last year, Commissioned Corps psychologists are being assigned in three-year tours to Army, Navy and Air Force hospitals in the United States.
To learn more about the opportunity, visit www.usphs.gov or call (800) 279-1605.
