Physicians Needed for CCC Duty
Applications are invited from physicians for medical service in the Civilian Conservation Corps in the Seventh Corps Area, which includes Minnesota, North and South Dakota, Iowa, Nebraska, Missouri, Kansas and Arkansas. The initial salary is $3,200 a year. No quarters for families are provided, and the physicians are required to pay for their own food at the camps. The principal duties consist of the medical care of the enrollees and the practice of preventive medicine. To be eligible for this service, the physician must be a citizen of the United States, a graduate of an accredited medical school authorized to confer the degree of doctor of medicine and physically able to perform the duties involved. All physicians interested in this type of work are requested to submit their applications to the Office of the Surgeon, Seventh Corps Area, Federal Building, Omaha.
