Government Physician Duties
A government physician plays a unique role in the advancement of healthcare and the treatment of patients across all types of communities. Physicians who work in federal facilities are responsible for helping to develop national health policies, helping patients in underserved and impoverished communities, responding to public health emergencies, working across a multidisciplinary field, leading others in a team, and performing general primary care services. Government physicians will be involved both with making policy and treating patients on an individual level. A good government physician is also required to have a creative mind, the ability to think critically and an aptitude for making compassionate decisions that will positively impact the most people.
Government Physician Education Requirements
A government physician is required to have a Doctor of Medicine or a Doctor of Osteopathy degree from a recognized medical school. After that, a prospective government physician must participate in one year of supervised direct training in a clinical training; a one-year internship usually qualifies the individual for candidacy. The physician must then complete a residency program in their specialized field of medicine, as well as a fellowship program that allows the physician to perform research and further training. After completing the necessary steps, a government physician must then obtain full licensure from their state of practice, as well as a certificate to practice medicine from the national board.
