The U.S. Army Medical Department has recently developed an advanced medical training course for non-commissioned officers in the 91B Medical Specialist military occupational specialty MOS. This report documents the procedures employed by the Academy of Health Sciences in the selection of enlisted personnel for the first 91B30 Advanced Medical Specialist training course at Ft. Sam Houston, Texas. Two primary concerns were identified in screening applications received for the initial course. First, selection was to be equitable for both male and female medics in the pay grades of E-4 and E-5 to comply with equal opportunity requirements. The second issue dealt with the requirement that the initial class must be representative of the E-4 and E-5 medical specialist population. Since developed training and test materials would be validated during the first class, it was crucial that the full range of talent within the MOS be represented in the first class.
