Asst. Specialty Leader for Aerospace Medicine and Flight Surgery – O4/O5

Posted on Updated on

We are soliciting applications for Assistant Specialty Leader (ASL) for Aerospace Medicine and Flight Surgery to assist in management and oversight of a community of over 270 aviation medicine physicians and previous flight surgeons.  The ASL will work closely with the SL (CAPT(s) Robert “Biff” Krause) to manage the two communities as we move through the transition to Operational Medical Officer’s.  You will liaise with the SL, detailer, residency program director, NAMI, TYCOMs, MAW Surgeons, and BUMED to ensure the community is on track to meet the mission of the Naval Aviation Enterprise and BUMED.  Candidates should be board certified in Aerospace Medicine and O4-O5 in rank. 

Please email LCDR Eng-Kulawy (contact in the global) by COB 1 OCT 2021 with a CV, Bio, PDFs of your Officer Summary Record (OSR) and Performance Summary Record (PSR), and a letter of intent indicating your desire for selection, prior operational experience, as well as several sentences explaining your desire to fill this role.  There are no geographic limitations as the ASL role is a collateral duty.  Please contact the current SL if you have any questions about the role of Assistant SL.

USU Commandant Position

Posted on Updated on

Attached is the advertisement for this position. While it says they will consider O5 or O6 officers, I highly doubt anyone who is not a CAPT or CAPT(s) could successfully compete for it:

All applicants must submit the requested materials to CAPT Joel Schofer (contact in the global) by COB 24 SEP 2021. All applications must route through BUMED, not be sent directly to USUHS.

Call for Assistant Specialty Leader for Surface Medicine and Volunteers to Help Process Surface OMO Applications

Posted on Updated on

As the transition to straight-through GME begins, the role of the operational Specialty Leaders has increased in scope and impact.  We are soliciting applications for Assistant Specialty Leader (ASL) for Surface Medicine.  The ASL will work closely with the SL (CAPT Mark Lenart, contact in the global) to fill key surface medicine positions each year, liaising with the SL and TYCOMs to ensure the most qualified candidates are assigned to serve our surface forces.  Please email LCDR Jennifer Eng-Kulawy (contact in the global) by COB 17 SEP 2021 with a CV, military bio, PDFs of your Officer Summary Record (OSR) and Performance Summary Record (PSR), and a letter of intent indicating your desire for selection, prior operational experience, as well as several sentences explaining your desire to fill this role.  There are no geographic limitations as the ASL role is a collateral duty.  Please contact the current SL, CAPT Mark Lenart, with any questions about the role of Assistant SL.

Additionally, there is a short-term need for volunteers to assist CAPT Lenart during the current Operational Medical Officer (OMO) cycle (through December 2021).  No operational experience is required and the time-frame for the commitment is limited to CY 2021.  Again, there are no geographic limitations and anyone from anywhere can help out. All you need is time, an internet connection, and a desire to help shape the new Surface Force Medical Officer application process. Please contact CAPT Lenart with your interest or with any questions.
