leave a comment »

Cadets, are you interested in Biomedical Science? Medicine? Do not know if you want to pursue a career path in Military or Civilian Medicine or Science? Do you want to learn about Aerospace Medicine and Biomedical Science? Do you want to discuss important topics in the Biomedical Sciences career field? Learn about Bioethics? Biosafety? Visit with professionals in various healthcare fields? Then you may be perfect for this announcement.

Col Elliott and I would like to announce the Biomedical Sciences Academy. Currently, there are no other activities that focus on Medicine and Biomedical Science within the Civil Air Patrol. The Academy will use a diverse array of learning techniques to educate Cadets on a variety of educational topics. More information is presented in the attached documents.

The dates for the Academy are 26 December 2015 to 02 January 2016. The cost will be $150. Cadets are required to have achieved the Wright Brothers Award (C/SSgt) prior to attendance and must be at least 15 years of age. Prior encampment attendance is preferred, but not required. Cadets will be required to submit a CAPF 31 (as well as other required forms), a Cadet Résumé, and a short essay (~300 words) as to how the Academy will benefit you. The selection criteria will judge an applicant as a whole. No one criterion will be “more important” than others. There are only 20 available slots for this Academy. Deadline is 01 November 2015.

More information can be found on the attached announcement.

We understand that this scheduled week may not be the most opportune time for many as it is the winter holidays for schools. Unfortunately, Camp Dodge becomes extremely busy during the summer months. In addition, we do not want to conflict with any established summer activities or the ability to attend an encampment or NCSAs.
