Whenever a position is advertised a second time, that usually means there is little qualified interest in the position. I’m not saying everyone would like this job or be good at it, but this position has been advertised a second time by BUMED:
It is great prep for anyone looking to do Executive Medicine and is a high-level position at BUMED, which has historically led to promotion to O6. If you’re an O5, I’d look at this position and consider applying.
