Company: Army National Guard
Location: Santa Rosa
Posted on: June 25, 2020

Job Description:

Be the first line of defense against injury and illness of civilians after natural disasters, and the Soldiers who serve and protect our Nation every day. As a Health Care Specialist in the Army National Guard, you will experience a fulfilling role as an expert caretaker on and off the battlefield.

You will address the health care needs of civilians after natural disasters or civil emergencies; treat injuries and illnesses suffered by Soldiers through the administration of immediate emergency care and ongoing care; and support and manage medical readiness, supplies, and equipment.

Job Duties

--- Administer emergency medical treatment to battlefield casualties

--- Assist with outpatient and inpatient care and treatment

Helpful Skills

--- Enjoy helping and caring for others

You may also consider a career as an emergency medical technician, medical assistant, a medication aide, or physician's assistant.
