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

Development team boards held this summer for the Biomedical Sciences Corps, Medical Service Corps and Nurse Corps selected 216 officers from 20 career fields for the 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.

Development teams reviewed all aspects of the candidates’ records, duty histories, demonstration of leadership abilities, professional development and permanent change of station eligibility to identify the most qualified for the opportunities.

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