Medical Doctor

Greetings, my name is Justin Mucciolo, and I oversee the Army Health Care Team’s talent acquisition efforts here in the Southern California area. Every day there are brave men and women in this country that make sacrifices to protect the freedoms and liberties that we all enjoy. I am contacting you to provide information about opportunities for service, providing top-notch care to these brave individuals and their families, part-time in the U.S. Army Reserve.


Qualified physicians are eligible for up to a $75,000 signing bonus and up to $250,000 for Student Loan Repayment in addition to their salary. Additionally, Army Reserve Physicians are eligible for excellent health care through Tricare at low monthly premiums of $46.09 the individual and $221.38 per family.


So, what is service like in the Army Reserve? In the Army Reserve, physicians work a total of about 38 days annually. This is typically broken down to one weekend per month, and then a two-week training stent each year. As a physician, your time serving will be as just that, a physician. You will practice evidence-based medicine, train other service members about health care, and advise Unit Commanders on the health and welfare of their Units. During the rest of the year physicians practice at their regular job in their local private practice or hospital.


I know how valuable your time is, if you are interested, I would like the opportunity to speak with you about these opportunities, determine your eligibility, and answer any questions that you may have. We are looking for bright and dynamic physicians that share our values of selfless service and providing excellent care. If you share these values, you may be the right fit for the Army Medical Department.


Keep in mind that while the financial incentives and benefits are generous, the greatest reward is knowing that you’re making a difference providing care to the best patients in the world, service members and their families.


I look forward to hearing from you, thank you again for your time.
