1st Medical Recruiting Battalion Welcome Packet
As you begin your transition to recruiting duty we will assign you a sponsor. You will also receive a welcome packet from the battalion as well as a sponsor from your designated Medical Recruiting Company or Station. Our S-1 section can assist you in receiving the welcome packet. They can be contacted at (301) 677-7450 or you can email by clicking here. Please ensure you have the following checklist either completed, or items with you upon signing into the battalion. Many of our recruiting sites are not located on or near a military facility so it is important to prepare yourself prior to your move. Your sponsor will assist.
You will also need to attend the Healthcare Recruiters Course either during your PCS or shortly after you arrive. This is a three week course conducted at Ft Jackson, SC. We would also advise that you speak to every military healthcare professional that you come across to ask them “their story” – what was their draw to the military?
