Pain Management Physician
PAIN MEDICINE PHYSICIAN
Camp Lejeune, NC
This position is for Wounded Ill and Injured (WII) initiatives under the WII program. The program seeks to address gaps in the care available for the prevalent injuries and illnesses among service members retiring from active duty in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as the difficulties of transitioning from military to veteran status. The WII program is directed by the President, Congress, and the Department of Defense (DoD) and addresses concerns about the quality and availability of medical, mental health, and dental care services. Through adoption of risk based staffing models and a uniform, best practice standard of care across DoD, the program seeks to ensure easy, rapid access to care for all beneficiaries and to ensure that transition across networks of care recognizes the unique care coordination requirements for WII patients. The WII program focuses on care and treatment to injured and ill service members, studies, case managers, inspections, policies, and other initiatives to improve the management of wounded personnel.
