USAJOBS.gov (https://www.usajobs.gov/) is an excellent resource for finding jobs in the nationwide. Past postings have been for positions at VA facilities and on military bases. This is the primary website for all US government related jobs, so you’ll need to search for “Acupuncture” or “Acupuncturist.” You can also save your searches and subscribe to receive notifications by email of new job postings. Typically in the system, acupuncture is cataloged as a “0640 Health Aid and Technician” or 0601 General Health Science.” You’ll need to create a profile in order to apply.
Indian Health Services
The Indian Health Service (IHS) (https://www.ihs.gov/), an agency within the Department of Health and Human Services, is responsible for providing federal health services to American Indians and Alaska Natives. To search for job postings please follow the link provided (https://www.ihs.gov/jobs/). Some states also run regional divisions of the IHS (i.e. California https://www.ihs.gov/california/), who you may be able to contact about potential openings. Since acupuncture isn’t an established service in IHS, facility budgets tend to dictate openings for an acupuncturist.
