EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: 2015 Air National Guard Physician Survey
Air National Guard Physicians are able and willing to deploy to support wartime and peacetime missions, both at home and abroad. For Domestic Support of Civil Authority Operations, all respondents were able provide support for 30 days which covers all such operations. For steady state support operations, civilian employment influences length; those with government/institutional employment can deploy longer without difficulty as compared to physicians in private/group practice. Professional specialty also plays a role; procedural/critical skills start to deteriorate after staffing a flight medicine clinic for 60 days. Some physicians have the ability, support and financial resources to deploy for a 6 month block whereas others are able to provide service for shorter times (60-90 days), but they can collectively cover a 6 month block. Possible recommendation: For a 180 day deployment, offer first to physicians who can cover entire block in or out of their AEF bucket. Offer next to divide block into 90 day units with each physician covering ½. Finally, divide block into 60 day units with priority given to experienced, multiply deployed physicians or those with critical care skills.
