This project aimed to create a framework to safely and efficiently recruit United States Air Force medical technicians into the Aeromedical Evacuation specialty directly from Aerospace Medicine Services Apprentice technical training. This project was selected to address a current manning restraint due to relying on candidates to already be qualified medical technicians performing duties at their first assignment or later. The methods used were comparing the current state with existing processes similar to the goals of this project as well as feedback from subject matter experts’ recommendations. The results of this project were promising as several courses of action proved feasible with the major takeaway being that a proof of concept exists requiring additional means of testing for future potential applications.
