FY17 CAPT Board Statistics and Basic Promotion Board Math

Posted on

The FY17 Staff Corps O6 promotion board basic statistics are here.  I don’t have the specialty specific ones yet, but I’m sure they’ll be coming soon.

Let’s go over the basic stats for Medical Corps so that everyone understands them as they can be very confusing.

According to page 2 of the convening order, the promotion opportunity was 70%.  The number of people in zone was 91.  In order to find the total number of officers they could select for promotion, you take the promotion opportunity x the size of the zone:

(70% promotion opportunity) x (91 officer zone size) = 64 officers could be selected for promotion

As you see in the stats, they selected exactly 64:

  • Above Zone – selected 32 of 183 or 17.5%
  • In Zone – selected 31 of 91 or 34.1%
  • Below Zone – selected 1 of 150 or 0.7%

As you can see, even though the promotion opportunity was 70%, the chance you got selected in zone was only 34.1% because selects came from above and below zone.

New Feature: Career Consult & Record Review!

Posted on

There are a lot of people you can turn to when you need career advice.  There’s your Specialty Leader, your Detailer, and other senior mentors you’ve developed relationships with during your career.  If you want your record reviewed, you can either e-mail your Detailer or go to the Advanced Medical Department Officer’s Course (AMDOC) where a Detailer will review it one-on-one with you.  What do you do if you want an outside opinion or you can’t peel away to go to AMDOC?  Well…that’s where the new MCCareer.org Career Consult & Record Review comes in!

If you just have some questions to ask, go to the new tab on the website, submit your questions, and hit send.  I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

If you want your record reviewed, go to BUPERS On-Line and download the PDF copies of your Officer Summary Record and Performance Summary Record.  Once you have them, e-mail me with them attached (e-mail address on the tab or on the mail.mil global) and I’ll review your record for you.  It’s that simple.

Anyone interested should contact their Detailer.

TRICARE Urgent Care Pilot Program Launches May 23rd

Posted on

Maybe I’m just biased since I work in the Emergency Department, but I think that this program could be a game changer in many ways.  As of May 23rd TRICARE beneficiaries will be able to get urgent care twice per fiscal year from a provider other than their PCM without a referral from their PCM.  I’m sure it will change things for all primary care providers and possibly specialists as well because their referral sources may change.  Here are a couple of links to check out:

Old vs New Retirement System Explained

I already discussed the value of a military pension, but this article from the Military Officers Association of America does an excellent job of explaining the old and new systems, so I wanted to reblog it for anyone who’s interested to read:

The New Service Retirement Program

What are AQDs and How Do You Get Them?

Posted on Updated on

Additional Qualification Designation Codes or AQDs are 3 letter codes that:

  1. Identify special skills required by a billet.
  2. Identify a qualification awarded to an officer for serving in a specially coded billet.

In other words, they are tools used by Navy Personnel Command (PERS) to assign officers to billets.

They also serve another purpose, though, because they feed the “Special Qualifications” section in the lower left of your Officer Summary Record (OSR), which is seen by promotion boards.  (This section is noted the the lower left circle on this fabricated OSR.)  This is why officers try to get as many AQDs as they can.  The more things are in your Special Qualifications section, the better it looks to a promotion board.  (That said, I have to tell you that some officers can get a little carried away with AQDs.  Get as many as you can that make sense for your specialty and career, but don’t chase AQDs because you think they’ll get you promoted.  AQDs, in general, don’t get you promoted.  Competitive EP fitreps do.)

The full list of AQDs can be found here, and the list of medical AQDs can be found here, but I think a very useful list to have would be a list of all the AQDs that any physician can get irrespective of their specialty.  That list is below, and if you qualify for any of them you’ll have to send your Detailer the proof that you qualify in order to get them added to your record.

What’s the bottom line?  To make sure you have all the AQDs you can get, you have to do 4 things:

  1. Review the chart below and see which general AQDs you qualify for.
  2. Review the AQDs for your specialty in this document.
  3. If you had a prior career before you became a Medical Corps officer of any kind, you’re stuck reviewing the complete list of AQDs and seeing if there are any you qualify for that weren’t covered by #1 or #2 above.
  4. For any AQDs you qualify for, you send your Detailer the 3 letter code, the year you qualified, and the proof that you qualify (usually scanned copies of fitreps, certificates, etc.).

New Masters in Health Administration Executive Clinical Leadership Track

Posted on Updated on

There is a new program for officers who want to pursue a Masters in Health Administration while on active duty.  The program is described in this white paper, and the Navy point-of-contact for the program is CAPT Lynn T. Downs.  I don’t usually put people’s contact info in public posts, so just check the global e-mail directory for her e-mail address if you have questions.

Of note, to apply for this program you must do so through the Graduate Medical Education Selection Board.  You can read about my thoughts on advanced degrees here:

Could a Masters Degree Get You Promoted?
