As a part of the Goldbelt Glacier Team, you will be supporting the Naval Logistics Command with medical services for active-duty military personnel, their dependents, eligible DoD civilian employees, and other eligible beneficiaries designated by the Government. As a HealthCare Worker (HCW), you will be assigned to either a Military Treatment Facility (MTF) or other Federal medical treatment facilities in Japan.


Essential Job Functions:

  • Perform a full range of Certified Athletic Trainer duties.
  • All services performed shall fall within those guidelines established by the National Athletic Trainers Association, American College of Sports Medicine, and American Medical Society for Sports Medicine.
  • Prevent, recognize, treat and rehabilitate injuries sustained during rigorous military training required to establish/maintain the physical readiness of personnel.
  • Perform under the clinical supervision of a physician supervisor assigned to the HCW by the Commanding Officer.
  • The physician supervisor is responsible for the care rendered by the ATC. The following levels of supervision apply:
    • Direct supervision. The physician supervisor is involved in the decision making process. This level of supervision is for all ATCs during their initial 30-day evaluation period. Direct supervision includes (1) Verbal, whereby the ATC shall contact the physician supervisor by direct conversation or telephone before the ATC implements or changes a regimen of care and (2) Physically present whereby the physician supervisor is present through all or a significant portion of care. In the Branch Medical Clinic (BMC)/Sports Medicine and Reconditioning Therapy (SMART) center, direction supervision is reflected by the physician’s co-signature of the patient’s record before he/she departs from the facility.
    • Indirect supervision. The physician supervisor is not required to be involved in the decision making process at the time decisions are made. This supervision is primarily accomplished through retrospective review of records, evaluation of appropriateness of consultation and referral, and evaluation of events identified through occurrence screens. Retrospective record reviews will assess the adequacy of the history and physical examination, appropriateness of tests, and planned course of treatments and interventions.
  • This type of supervision will be afforded the ATC following successful completion of a 30-day evaluation period and demonstrated knowledge and competency of required functional areas.
  • Actively consult with physicians at the treatment facility and provide a full range of direct prevention, treatment and rehabilitation as ordered by the Physician Supervisor or other consultant physicians.
