We’ve released the specialty-specific career paths (SSCP):
Please see the message below from the Medical Corps Career Planner:
BLUF: Encourage widest dissemination of the SSCP to your community. Realize this is meant not to supplant but rather be complementary to the larger MC pathway, which can be found here:
Thank you for your hard work on the Specialty Specific Career Pathways. Some that deal with smaller specialties (that have Assistant Specialty Leaders) I have rolled up into the primary specialty. These are always works in progress, so please feel to make modifications as you see fit but please discuss with me to ensure it is in the repository, and it aligns with the larger vision of Navy Medicine.
Also, please make note of slide 1 which addresses community concerns especially regarding OP MED expectations, “tracks” and maintenance of clinical currency. Please know that the Corps Chiefs office recognizes these pitfalls and will continue to work with you and PERS to ensure we are getting the right people to the right places, not just for needs of the Navy but also needs of the SM.
Please let me know if you have questions or concerns. V/r, ak
