California Readies Medical Reserve Corps for Deployment

As California responds to the COVID-19 outbreak, we are preparing for an increase in the number of people who urgently need health care in our communities. To serve Californians and support our health care system, we are preparing to open additional health care sites to provide medical services both for people who have symptoms of, or test positive for, COVID-19 and to relieve the pressure on our health care system by providing care for non-COVID-19 cases.

We need your help. To ensure adequate staff for these sites throughout the state, we’re calling on healthcare providers, behavioral health professionals, and health care administrators. Including:

  • Physicians (MD, DO), including medical students

  • Pharmacists

  • Dentists

  • Nurse practitioners

  • Physician assistants

  • Nurses (RN, LVN, CNA), including nursing students

  • Behavioral health professionals (psychiatrist, psychologist, psychiatric nurse practitioner, LCSW, LMFT, LPCC)

  • Respiratory therapists

  • Paramedics

  • Medical assistants

  • Emergency medical technicians

Participants will be paid and will be given malpractice insurance coverage. Locations will vary, but we will try to match your geographical preferences.

You have the opportunity to play a critical role in responding to this public health emergency in your region. To care for Californians who need your help, please sign up.

To be eligible for COVID-19 emergency medical staffing roles, you must:

  • Be 18 years of age or over

  • Be eligible to work in the United States

  • Have a valid driver’s license or passport, and a social security card

  • Have a valid California License for clinical practice (if you are a MD, DO, etc.)

  • OR are a medical student or nursing student

  • Have no negative licensure/certification actions (for licensed/certified professionals)
