BLUF: Please take this 5-minute survey to assess attitudes regarding billet assignments among Medical Corps officers. The results will be used to improve the Detailing process:
BACKGROUND: Billets are assigned by the Detailer after negotiation with members and Specialty Leaders. In an effort to improve this process, the Navy is considering a detailing marketplace similar to the civilian national residency match program. In this scenario, members consider all available billets, and commands consider all available members. After a period of time where both parties communicate with each other, rank lists are submitted. An algorithm generates billet matches using the rank lists.
As a pilot project, FY-17 Emergency Medicine billets will be assigned using this mechanism. We will use the results of this survey to improve future detailing policy. The results will be briefed to leadership and will be made public.
