Title; Associated Form; and OMB Number: Health Professions Scholarship Program (HPSP); OMB Control Number 0720–TBD. Needs and Uses: This collection of information was developed by a TriService committee intent on providing an efficient, accessible, and common format for applicants to apply for HPSP Scholarships. It serves to consolidate the initial demographic and educational information previously being collected separately by all Services. As such it continues to satisfy the requirement of the DoD Issuance 6000.13; Medical Manpower and Personnel. This form is not intended to replace additional Service-specific information required, rather, it serves to support the DoD, Army, Navy, Air Force, and MHS missions. Affected Public: Individuals or Households. Annual Burden Hours: 622 hrs. Number of Respondents: 1,244. Responses per Respondent: 1. Average Burden per Response: .50 (30 minutes). Frequency: One Time. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: sroberts on DSKD5P82C1PROD with NOTICES Summary of Information Collection The Health Professions Scholarship Program (HPSP) offers prospective military physicians, dentists, nurse practitioners, optometrists, psychologists, and veterinarians a paid medical education in exchange for service as a commissioned medical department officer. Programs are available in the United States Army, the United States Navy, and the United States Air Force (AFHPSP). Created under authority of the Uniformed Services Health Professions Revitalization Act of 1972, the HPSP is the primary source of trained healthcare professionals entering the United States Armed Forces. Subject to eligibility for a commission (such as U.S. citizenship, physical and academic qualifications, etc.), scholarship ‘‘selectees’’ are commissioned as second lieutenants in the U.S. Army Reserve or the U.S. Air Force Reserve, or ensigns in the U.S. Navy Reserve. The selectees are then placed on inactive reserve status during their medical training. VerDate Nov<24>2008 21:23 Sep 21, 2009 Jkt 217001 Prospective students compete for scholarships that cover some or all of the medical school years. The Air Force offers three- and four-year scholarships, and the Army offers one- to four-year scholarships. While on scholarship, the financial expenses of tuition, fees, a monthly stipend, and mandatory books and equipment are paid by the student’s sponsoring service. As inactive reserve officers, the students are required to serve 45 days of active duty for training (ADT) each fiscal year. While on active duty, they receive the same rights, privileges, and pay, and are subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice, as any other active-duty officer. For the first two years of training, this duty is sometimes spent attending an officer basic course/ school (Army, Navy, Air Force) or executing ‘‘School Orders’’ (participating in clinical training) at the student’s university. For the 3rd and 4th years, the student will often carry out elective clinical rotations at a military hospital. Upon graduation, the student is promoted to the rank of captain in the Army and Air Force, or lieutenant in the Navy, and is placed on active duty for residency in a military or civilian hospital. In general, Army and Air Force medical residents are allowed to complete their residencies before proceeding to their first assignments, while Navy personnel complete an internship and then serve as a general medical officer (GMO), with the option of completing a residency following their GMO tour. The incurred service obligation is generally one-for-one for every servicepaid year of schooling, with a minimum of two years for physicians and three years for other specialties. Additional time required for certain postgraduate programs, such as lengthy residencies, can result in longer service obligations. Fulfillment of the obligation begins only after postgraduate training is completed. For Navy officers, time spent as a GMO is credited towards the service obligation. This collection will consolidate and standardize requirements across the Services for the collection and reporting of needed information as it pertains to the enrollee. Dated: August 21, 2009.
