EMERGENCY SERVICES PHYSICIAN

CARE WHEN IT CAN’T WAIT

When Airmen or their families have a medical emergency, time can be of the essence. Focused on immediate decision-making and treatment, Emergency Services Physicians take the actions necessary to care for and stabilize their patients. The care provided by these quick-thinking specialists often prevents death or further disability until they can be referred to the appropriate medical departments.

What you’ll do

  • Examine, diagnose and treat illnesses and injuries in an acute care setting
  • Provide interim care until the care of the patient can be assumed by an appropriate specialist
  • Organize and design disaster management programs and triage activities for disaster and mass casualty situations
  • Work with nonphysician healthcare personnel on training and skill performance
