1. The first step is to submit your completed application online.  You must turn in ALL the required documents along with your application in order to be considered for a Hiring Process. 
  2. Once your application is complete and approved, you will be scheduled for a Hiring Process.  You will receive an official invitation with instructions for preparation for the day of the hiring process.  
    • The Hiring Proces is an interviewing and selection process that includes multiple stations consisting of a panel interview, physical agility test (PAT), and a clinical scenario.  All candidates are evaluated at their highest level of training. 
  3. If we receive satisfactory results after you complete all of the assessments, we then make a conditional offer of employment.  The offer is contingent upon the applicant passing a pre-placement health screening, which consists of a standard physical, drug test and TB test, and background/employment verification. 
  4. If the applicant successfully completes the pre-placement screening their employment starts at the next new hire orientation.  If there are no vacant positions available upon completion of these steps you will be placed on a waiting list for upcoming academies. 
  5. Orientation runs for approximately 3-4 weeks, it is not held on weekends or MedStar recognized holidays. 
  6. After the completion of the new hire orientation program (NEOP), newly hired field employees will ride third person with a Field Training Officer (FTO) for approximately 8-weeks of field training before being released to an available shift.
