General Recruitment Materials

General Recruitment PowerPoint (PPT 9.17MB) (PDF 2.8MB)
This PowerPoint presentation is designed to give an overview of a career in the Corps. It is aimed at a general audience of potential officers (i.e., it is not category-specific). Talking points are provided for each slide and can be viewed by clicking View, then Notes Page. There are several placeholders for a presenter to customize the presentation. For example, in the introduction for the title slide, an officer would say, "Hello. I'm [Jane Smith], a [pharmacist] serving as [a lieutenant commander] in the U.S. Public Health Service." Slide 22 should be completed to mirror the information presented on slides 16 and 17. If you have any questions about proper usage of this presentation, please contact CDR Thomas Pryor at Thomas.Pryor@hhs.gov.
