Abstract:

The U.S. Air Force has seven medical and professional officer corps the BSC, the Chaplain Corps, the Dental Corps, the JAG Corps attorneys, the Medical Corps physicians, the MSC, and the Nurse Corps. The purpose of this report is to provide an analysis of all seven Air Force medical and professional officer corps and their relative statuses with regard to end strengths, accession levels, promotion flow, and attrition since the late 1970s. We find that recent accession and retention trends have been most adverse in the Air Forces Nurse Corps.
