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.
Congrats to all the new Captain Selects! (link here and list pasted below)

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.
1. Job: DOD Liaison to the Centers for Disease Control 2. Fill date: Summer 2016 3. Rank: CDR and above (although if I was a LCDR I'd apply) 4. Population health background required and must be eligible for orders. The relevant documents that describe everything are here and here. Anyone interested should contact their Detailer.
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:
Any academics should consider applying for this program. It is funded by ABMS and would go a long way toward setting you up for a career in academics and research. It is these kind of things that differentiate you from the pack on FITREPs, when you are competing on a promotion board, and for future career milestones like Program Director or Specialty Leader:

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:
