New COVID-19 Initiative Seeks to Expand Workforce

The Governor announced a new website this week, https://covid19.ca.gov/healthcorps/, to encourage clinicians not currently in the workforce to help the State address an anticipated COVID-19 surge. Those who register will be paid and given malpractice insurance coverage. Locations will vary, but the State will try to match your geographical preferences.

The state is specifically looking for:

•  Physicians (MD, DO), and medical students

•  Pharmacists

•  Dentists

•  Nurse practitioners

•  Physician assistants

•  Nurses (RN, LVN, CNA), and nursing students

•  Behavioral health professionals

•  Respiratory therapists

•  Paramedics

•  Medical assistants

•  Emergency medical technicians

 

To be eligible for COVID-19 emergency medical staffing roles, you must:

•  Be 18 years of age or over

•  Be eligible to work in the United States

•  Have a valid driver’s license or passport, and a social security card

•  Have a valid California License for clinical practice

•  Or are a medical student or nursing student

•  Have no negative licensure/certification actions
