CA's New Health Corps Calls on Health Professionals and Students to Step up to Meet Urgent Need
Article posted:  April 7, 2020, 4:00 p.m.

The State of California has developed a new Health Corps through which licensed medical professionals and students can sign up to assist during the coronavirus crisis.

To meet the moment head-on, the state is opening additional health care sites to treat people affected by COVID-19 and to relieve the pressure on our health care system by providing care for non-COVID-19 cases. 

The Health Corps needs:

- Physicians (MD, DO), including medical residents and students
- Pharmacists
- Dentists
- Nurse practitioners
- Nurses (RN, LVN, CNA), including nursing students
- Behavioral health professionals (psychiatrist, psychiatric technician, psychologist, psychiatric nurse practitioner, LCSW, LMFT, LPCC)
- Respiratory therapists
- Paramedics
- Medical assistants
- Emergency medical technicians

Those who join will be paid and given malpractice insurance coverage. Locations will vary, but the state will try to match 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.
