Throwback Thursday Classic Post: Reminder to Graduating Residents – You are Now Eligible for GMO Incentive Pay
Congratulations to those who are about to graduate residency. Please note the following at the bottom of page 3 of the FY20 Medical Corps Active Component Special Pays Guidance where it discusses General Medical Officer (GMO) Incentive Pay (IP):
Medical Corps officers who complete initial residency on active duty are eligible for the GMO IP the day after completing residency. For those who complete residency not on active duty eligibility is the date reported to first permanent command, if less than three months after completing residency.
This means you need to go to your Special Pays coordinator and apply for the GMO IP. It increases you from a residency IP of $8,000 per year to the GMO IP of $20,000 per year.
