We have identified some discrepancies with some of the previous attachments.
For clarity, please ensure you are using the following updated documents:

AFMSA Memo_Certification and Waiver Authority Update for AFI 48-123 (with
Attachment 2 Table)

Please be sure to discard all copies of the previous documents.

In addition, there have been some questions and requests for additional

Recently, we sent a notification indicating the 23-24 April 18 SAS Course is
now available for registration. Currently, the registration process involves
sending an email request to Lt Col Owens. I am also able to register
individuals for training. Once we receive and acknowledge your email

Subject: Important SAS Updates

Good afternoon,

I am sending this email to introduce myself and offer my services as the new
SAS Program POC from NGB/SG.

My name is MSgt Carissa Maxson and my home unit is the 154 MDG at JB Pearl
Harbor-Hickam . I’ve recently returned from a two year detail in the
ANGRC/CC’s Command Support Staff, but my ties to NGB/SG reach back to July
2011. Now that I have returned to NGB/SG, I have been placed in NGB/SGPS,
Physical Exams and Standards, and assigned as a new POC for the State Air
Surgeon program. Lt Col Tremikae Owens (NGB/SGPS) and I are excited to
continue connecting with you to see how we can help to make the program
better.

One of our goals is to ensure you receive timely communication. There have
been important changes that you will need to be aware of. This information
has already been provided to your HSTs in an email earlier this week.

First, see attached Guidance Memorandum for AFI 48-123 issued on 28 Jan 18
and review the changes.  Please note, AFI 48-123 is currently under
re-write. We will communicate updates as soon as possible.

Second, the current version of “Attachment 2, Certification and Waiver
Authority” for AFI 48-123 can be found on the 25 May 2016 Memorandum from
the Office of the Air Force Surgeon General. See attached “Memorandum
Certification and Waiver Authority Update for AFI 48-123.” It will be
incorporated into the re-write of AFI 48-123. In the meantime, the May 2016
memorandum regarding Certification and Waiver Authority remains on the
Knowledge Exchange and is still in effect.

Third, we have made some clarifications to the “ANG Certification/Waiver
Authority Table” as of 9 Feb 18. Please see attached.

Finally, Medical Readiness University (MRU) Registration for the next SAS
Course (09-11 July 2018) is available now through 11 May 2018, or until
filled. For your convenience, please see the attached “FINAL MRU ROE” for
the registration link, registration instructions and list of courses offered
with dates.

If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to contact either Lt
Col Owens at tremikae.r.owens2.mil@mail.mil or myself and we will be happy
to assist.

V/r,

One Response to State Air Surgeons

  1. I traded in my uniform, but I am still recruiting for civilian providers to work in AF MTFs. 
    I have a great opportunity in Flight Medicine at Little Rock.  Great pay.  Housing provided. Permanent position.  Mon – Fri.  Any state license.  No weekends, which means you could still get to and from Drill.  Housing is provided.  Malpractice at no cost.
