Commander, Navy Personnel Command(PERS-4415) must receive application packages by 15 June 2023. Only applicants who submit a screening package before the deadline will be eligible for screening. The preferred application method is e-mail, with scanned copies of signed documents attached. Send all e-mails encrypted to protect personally identifiable information. An officer may submit an application via mail or facsimile (FAX) (signed copies only) when another more secure means is impossible. The appropriate address and FAX number are on the NAVMED 1412/1. The board will only consider complete applications received on time. An officer applying for executive medicine must complete an oral board before being considered by the command screening board. The oral board is a one-time requirement. However, an officer may reapply for command screening in a subsequent year if not recommended by an oral board for command screening. The oral board is conducted to determine understanding of and readiness for the command responsibilities.
Sitting XOs do not need to screen again, but you need an endorsement letter from your CO and a wish list with any special considerations that need to be considered (EFMP, dual mil, allergic to sunny places, etc.) by June 15, 2023.
Sitting COs, if requesting an extension, I will need a letter requesting the extension by June 15, 2023
