CA Health Corps: Calling All Healthcare Providers
Gov. Gavin Newsom has issued a call to action for any available medical professionals, including retired professionals and students, to apply to join the new California Health Corps as hospitals prepare for a surge of COVID-19 cases.
The corps is seeking the participation of medical professionals who may not be actively working, such as retirees or those needing to renew their license.
Health care workers who can apply include retired EMTs, medical assistants, paramedics, doctors, pharmacists, medical residents and nursing students, according to its website, healthcorps.ca.gov.
Participants will be paid and will be given malpractice insurance coverage. Locations may vary. To see if you're eligible, visit healthcorps.ca.gov.
