The Navy and Marine Corps Public Health Center (NMCPHC) is excited to announce that
it is sponsoring its third offering of the Occupational and Environmental Medicine Fundamentals course September 10-14, 2018 in Portsmouth, Virginia.
The course is intended for physicians that do not have formal occupational medicine training (i.e. occupational medicine residency or experience) who will be practicing in an occupational medicine clinic or have significant occupational medicine-related workload. The course will cover the history of occupational medicine, workplace hazards, risk communication, Navy occupational health programs, worksite visits, and available resources. It will include clinical case break-out sessions.
The NMCPHC will fully fund the students attending the course, including travel.
They are applying for CME/CNE and anticipate the course will be approved for 30.5 credit hours as it has been in the past.
NMCPHC will coordinate with the Regional Program Managers & OEM Specialty Leader to ensure course seats are given to those according to clinic needs, responsibilities, and assigned job requirements.

Thought this was an interesting program:
Thanks to a colleague of mine, I recently learned that you can get Audio Digest for free. All you need to do is log into this link from a computer at a MTF:
This registration page should acknowledge you’re in the Defense Health Agency.
Does this work from a USMC computer? Probably not, but I’m honestly not sure.

This NAVADMIN announces application procedures for the September 2018 Distance Learning Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) program. 2. The Naval Postgraduate School (NPS) defense-focused EMBA is a 24 month, fully-funded, part-time graduate program focused on resource management. The program targets middle to senior grade active-duty officers, lieutenant commander (select) and above (lieutenant by waiver). Classes are delivered via online technologies with synchronous interaction between faculty and students. 3. The EMBA program begins with a required one-week Temporary Additional Duty (TAD) in-residence session at NPS in Monterey, CA. The week of 10-14 September 2018 includes an orientation and a graduate level course on management of teams. A second week of required TAD in-residence instruction will be scheduled during the second year of the EMBA program. Other than these two visits to NPS Monterey, students complete all instruction from their home locations. A block of rooms will be reserved in Monterey, CA for attendees during orientation. All efforts will be made to minimize TAD costs. 4. The parent command of the student will provide official travel orders and funding for TAD travel. If command funding is not available, students may fund their own travel and utilize no-cost TAD orders from their commands. 5. Active duty Naval officers accepted into the EMBA program are integrated into cohorts with civilian students. Typically, a cohort is comprised of about 25 students from which student teams are formed. Cohorts take all classes together during the 24 months of instruction. Students will receive instruction via online, synchronous educational software, with faculty teaching every session in real time, 1 day per week for approximately 6 to 7 hours per day during regular continental United States duty hours. Admission to the EMBA program is available to applicants in any geographic location, regardless of the number of applicants in a location. Since courses are delivered via online learning technologies, students must have access to a computer with high- speed internet and audio-video capabilities suitable for web-enabled interactions with instructors and students. A computer camera or webcam is required. 6. Eligibility requirements include an undergraduate degree from a regionally accredited 4 year college or university, 2.6 grade point average or higher on a 4 point scale, and at least one college-level mathematics course. A commanding officer endorsement letter is required to participate in the program. Department head or similar mid-level management experience and strong potential for promotion are preferred. Participants must have a projected rotation date no earlier than September 2020. The Graduate Management Admission Test is not required. 7. Graduates will be awarded an EMBA degree from NPS and the Navy subspecialty code 3100P, Financial Management-Defense Focus. Graduates will also earn Defense Acquisition University Level II equivalencies for all program management functional equivalencies. As directed by reference (a), officers participating in this program must agree to remain on active duty following completion of graduate studies for a period of 3 years. This obligation is discharged concurrently with any other service obligation already incurred. This agreement does not obligate the Navy to retain the officer on active duty. 8. Officers interested in the EMBA program can visit the NPS EMBA home page at www.nps.edu/emba for detailed eligibility and application process information. Deadline for the application process is no later than 15 June 2018. Online instruction begins 26 September 2018. 9. Point of contact is the NPS EMBA program office, at (831) 656- 2562/DSN 756, fax at (831) 656-3630, or via e-mail at emba(at)nps.edu. 10. This NAVADMIN will remain in effect until superseded or 31 December 2018, whichever occurs first. 11. Released by Vice Admiral R. P. Burke, N1.// BT #0001 NNNN UNCLASSIFIED//
