Abstract:

The Navy medical department is charged with maintaining healthy Sailors and Marines, attending to the sick and wounded in time of conflict, and successfully competing for and treating patients within the peacetime benefit mission. Because military medicine relies on a single force to meet these sometimes disparate missions, it faces a great challenge to cultivate a workforce that is dedicated to caring for patients, knowledgeable, ommitted to continuous improvement in performance and productivity, and adaptable and competent in both wartime and peacetime benefit settings. To address the Navy Surgeon Generals concerns, we conducted a three-part analysis. First we identified key factors in Navy physician job satisfactiondissatisfaction. When possible, we quantified these specific issues that might lead to dissatisfaction among Navy physicians. Next. we developed a model Comparing the total compensation salary special and incentive pays,. pension. and other benefits for Navy and private-sector physicians based on the most typical Navy career. Finally we began the evaluation process of determining whether Navy physicians are leaving at a greater rate than they historically have.
