What Are My Chances of Promoting?

See the tables below for the actual promotion statistics for the Medical Corps.

 

  FY10 FY11 FY12 FY13 FY14 FY15 FY16 FY17 FY18 FY19 FY20 FY21
LCDR 100% 100% 100% 100% 100% 100% 100% 100% 100% 100% 100% 100%
CDR 80% 80% 80% 80% 80% 70% 70% 65% 75% 85% 77% 77%
CAPT 80% 80% 80% 60% 60% 60% 50% 70% 80% 90% 81% 91%

Medical Corps promotion opportunity. This percentage is multiplied by the zone size to give the number of officers to be selected for promotion. For example, if the promotion opportunity is 60% and there are 100 officers in-zone, then 60 will be selected for promotion. This 60, however, may come from officers who are below-zone, in-zone, or above-zone. For example, maybe 50 of the 60 are in-zone, and 10 are above-zone. That is why the percentage of people in-zone who are selected for promotion is always lower than the promotion opportunity.  See below…
