Non BSO-18 Conference Funding
Under BUMEDINST 5050.6, Naval Medical Leader & Professional Development Command (NML&PDC) may provide funding for Medical Corps Officers in a Non BSO-18 status to attend conferences in order to maintain certification. Funding will only be provided when the member's command does not have funds available. Funding requests must be submitted to the member's command before it is submitted to NML&PDC. Members may only be funded for one Continuing Medical Education (CME) event per fiscal year, from either their command or NML&PDC. The conference/course must support the current scope of the member's medical practice. Members requesting funding from NML&PDC must have at least one year of active duty service following the conference.
Refer to the Non-BSO PUT Processing Procedures Guidance below in order to submit a funding request to NML&PDC. All documents that are required for submitting a funding request to NML&PDC can be found below.
