Air Force officials have selected more than 200 officers for the Air Force Medical Service Health Profession Education Program.

The selected officers will attend such programs as Emergency Medicine Physician Assistant fellowships, Master of Science in Health Physics, Combat Operations and Aviation Psychology and more.

The candidate list is posted to myPers. To view the list, select “Active Duty Officer” from the dropdown menu and search “Health Profession.”
