Recognizing and rewarding military physicians within the resource constrained environment of the U.S. army Medical Department Activity MEDDAC fort Ord is a challenge calling for renewed emphasis and leadership. market research targeting military physicians revealed a less than satisfactory score for the current systematic process of recognizing superb service. The research served to enlighten the MeDDAC leadership toward the needs and wants of military physicians regarding rewards and recognitions. This information is valuable because military physicians are at the core of the Army medical system. Systematic inefficiency, to include lack of recognition for superb performance, is a factor that may diminish a physicians potential and might influence their decision to remain on active duty. This study provides recognition and reward options most meaningful to physicians to different rank and specialty. Recommendations are provided that may serve to enhance military physician relations within the resource constrained environment of a MEDDAC.
