In order to assist the Navy’s Medical Corps recruiting mission, Commanding Officers have been encouraged to authorize permissive TAD to Medical Corps Officers who engage in recruiting activity.
In other words… if you were planning on taking leave, but spend some of your time helping to recruit for the Uniformed Services University (USU) or Medical Corps Health Professions Scholarship Program (HPSP), you can apply for no-cost TAD and not have to burn your leave. This is a great opportunity for young medical officers to network and build their leave bank.
- Make contact with your alma mater, Medical Officer recruiter, or any optimal group that may be interested in HPSP or USU. Email MedicalVIP.fct < at > navy < dot > mil for assistance. Feel free to email LCDR Brett Chamberlin (e-mail address is in the global) if you encounter any difficulties.
- Develop a plan to recruit, discuss, or generally represent Navy Medicine.
- Request Permissive TAD through your command.
