Florida has the third largest population of veterans in the nation with more than 1.5 million service men and women.  The Florida Department of Health (department) is committed to serving members of the United States Armed Forces, veterans and their families by encouraging them to apply for vacancies that fit their area of knowledge and/or expertise.  Through the Departments VALOR program, which expedites licensing for military veterans, the Department also waives initial licensing and application fees for military veterans who apply for a health care professional license within 60 months of an honorable discharge. These initiatives help ensure that the transition from military service into the workforce is as smooth as possible and reflects our appreciation for the dedication devoted to protecting our country.   
The  Volunteer Health Services program is an internal state agency program. It provides opportunities for anyone who wants to donate goods and/or their services to those in need under the supervision of the Department of Health (DOH).  A variety of volunteer opportunities are available in many DOH facilities to individuals with clerical, administrative, technical and professional skills.
