10 Years of O5 and O6 Promotion Rates by Specialty

Posted on

The Non-Surgical Detailer and I are working on a research project to take a deep dive on how all the various career factors affect the ability of physicians to promote. One of the first products of our preliminary research is a spreadsheet that shows 10 years of promotion rates to O5 and O6 by specialty. I’m sure the MCCareer.org audience would enjoy checking it out, so here it is:

CAPT and CDR (2100) Selection Rate by Specialty

There are multiple tabs, one for each fiscal year as well as the first tab, which is an overview.

    This project might have impact. I read it as: Attention Critical Wartime specialties- your value is equal or less than most other specialties in this organization. Good luck getting to 05.

      As a critical wartime specialist, I see what you mean. Is this the “deployment penalty” as some have called it? Great question. Hopefully BUMED will do the study we were trying to do. I volunteered to be the lead on it, but haven’t heard yet.
