from both the ranks of the Commissioned Corps, as
well as direct civilian accessions. It is
anticipated that some of these civilian
accessions will be former DoD uniformed

of the Psychological Health mission will include
psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, clinical
social workers, and psychiatric nurses. Where
possible, professionals who focus care in the
area of Traumatic Brain Injury, including
neurologists, nurses, speech pathologists, OTs
and PTs may also be assigned.
