This is my first videocast of a lecture I gave to the Emergency Medicine residents at NMC Portsmouth a few weeks ago. I was surprised by how many questions there were about special pays. I think it is a topic that is mundane to those of us that have been in the Navy for a while, but can be quite a mystery to new Medical Corps officers. As I learn how to videocast I’m sure the content will improve, but aside from one place where I said “January” instead of “July” I think it turned out well. I hope junior physicians enjoy this introduction to the world of Medical Corps special pays.
