Inventory booklets were administered to personnel in the Medical Services and AllergyImmunology specialties AFS 902XO and AFS 912X4 during the period August through December 1978. Survey results are based on responses from a selected sample of 11 percent of the AFS 902XO and 66 percent of the AFS 912X4 personnel assigned. Three major job clusters, based on similarity of tasks performed, were identified within the sample. Jobs within the Medical Service career ladder were heterogeneous due to the variety of patient care and treatment functions to which personnel were assigned. There was, however, gradual progression from the 3- to 7-skill level, with 3- and 5-skill level personnel performing primarily technical tasks while 7-skill level personnel primarily performed supervisory and management functions. allergyimmunology personnel, on the other hand, were quite homogeneous in tasks performed with 3-skill level personnel primarily performing technical tasks while 7-skill level personnel, in addition to performing the same technical tasks, also performed supervision and management functions.
