Commissioned Corps of the U.S. Public Health Service

Junior Officer Advisory Group


Make a difference, get involved in JOAG!

General members can get involved in JOAG by volunteering in any of our many committees. Through these committees, members will get the opportunity to actively participate and have a voice in the future of their Corps.

There are nine committees that focus both on what goes on within JOAG as well as JOAG's relationship to the Corps as a whole. Being on a committee is a great way to help other junior officers and assist in Corps-wide projects. Other benefits include meeting other junior officers from around the country, leadership development, and access to professional development. Each active committee member will get a letter of appreciation at the end of the operation year which can be included in their e-OPF. To learn about each committee, visit their specific webpage which includes their committee’s mission and current subcommittees. The committee webpages are accessible via the left blue menu bar.

Call for Volunteers

If you would like to volunteer for one or more of our committees, please contact the committee chair(s) directly.
