The Government Needs Physicians
The U. S. Civil Service Commission announces that applications are still being received for three grades of medical officer positions, ranging in salary from $3,200 to $4,600 a year for the following agencies: Public Health Service, Food and Drug Administration, Civil Aeronautics Administration, Veterans Administration and the Indian Service. An announcement was first published in The Journal, Sept. 21, 1940, p. 1032. The recent announcement amends the original one to add to the list of optional branches "diagnosis and treatment of cancer." Applications will be rated as received until further notice and certification made as the needs of the service require, except that if sufficient eligibles are obtained the receipt of applications may be closed, in which case due notice will be given.
