Thousands of Civilian Medical Staffers Leave Defense Amid Furloughs
By Eric Katz Staff Correspondent at Government Executive.com
More than 3,000 Defense Department medical civilians have left the agency in the face of furloughs and continued budget uncertainty, according to a report in USA Today.
A majority of the departures have come from the Army, where 5 percent of the civilian medical workforce has quit or retired this year. Vacated positions include “highly skilled clinicians, scientists, researchers and other health workers,” Lt. Gen. Patricia Horoho, the Army’s surgeon general, told USA Today.
