The Bureau of Medical Services maintains and promotes the health of diplomats and their family members who represent U.S. government agencies abroad. The U.S. Department of State assigns Foreign Service Medical Specialists to select posts overseas. Many of these posts have significant health risks and local medical facilities are often inadequate to cope with them. Foreign Service Medical Specialists provide primary and preventive health care services across the lifespan; engage in diplomatic responsibilities; direct health unit administrative functions; coordinate emergency medical response duties; and accomplish regional management duties.

This bureau has more than 200 clinicians working in over 170 countries, supported by 11 medical and administrative offices in Washington, D.C., and abroad. No matter which professional, academic or personal path you have taken in life, you can turn your unique perspectives and medical skills into an exciting public service career.
