Welcome to the Reserve Component (RC) Medical Community Mangers page. This website page is designed to provide helpful information on the RC Medical Communities including general guidance on accessing into each corps as well as information for current officers.
Read NAVADMIN 165/13 for new Accessions and Affiliations.
Read NAVADMIN 009/14 for SELRES Retention Incentives for Health Care Professionals.
Navy Medicine maintains the right workforce to deliver medical capabilities across the full range of military operations through the appropriate mix of accession, retention, education, and training incentives. The Navy Total Force maximizes the continuum of service, yet some active duty missions are not echoed in the Navy Reserve Component (RC) as some specialties are unavailable for paid status as a Selected Reservist. Navy Reserve Officers can drill with the Voluntary Training Units or request a change of designator in order to obtain further Navy specific training and accumulate points toward retirement. Some specialties need to be filled by officers trained on active duty for the particular specialty (e.g. Aviation Medicine, also know as Flight Surgery-15A). Bonuses are available to certain specialties; please read the above messages and check with a local Navy medical recruiter or the Career Transition Office (PERS-9X) for the current authorizations.
