General Information

Medical Information for ODS and Clerkships:
Any medical records that are on file at HPSP are electronically sent to ODS (via DoD Safe) prior to the start of each class by our Medical Readiness Department. While at ODS, scholarship participants will receive required military vaccinations and lab work. Taking a copy of your most recent shot record may prevent you from getting duplicate vaccinations. The list of current vaccinations and lab work performed at ODS can be found on their web site at
Although your ADT orders may state that students are required to report to their ADT with their medical records, only your proof of vaccination (to include COVID-19 vaccination) is required. Students should keep a copy of their vaccination record(s) handy so that it is readily available when they check-in to their ADT assignment and get their orders stamped.
Height and Weight Standards
All students are required to remain within Navy height and weight standards while part of our HPSP scholarship program. If a student fails to meet these standards when reporting for an active duty assignment, they will be placed on a weight control program. Students reporting to Officer Development School (ODS) out of weight standards will be sent home and their annual training orders will be cancelled for that fiscal year.
Injuries and Illnesses while on Annual Training
If a student sustains an injury or has an illness that requires medical care while on ADT orders, they should seek immediate medical treatment at their training site.
If this occurs, immediately contact our Medical Readiness Dept. or call 301-295-3772/6551. By instruction, you are NOT to be released from your ADT until you are in a full duty status or able to return to school.
