RMKS/1.  This NAVADMIN solicits applications and provides guidance for the 
FY-16 Enlisted to Medical Degree Preparatory Program (EMDP2).
 
2.  The EMDP2 is a 2-year undergraduate education program open to enlisted 
personnel of all ratings who meet eligibility requirements per reference (a).  
The EMDP2 is a partnership between the Uniformed Services University (USU) 
and the armed services to provide an opportunity for highly-motivated, 
academically promising enlisted Service members.  The EMDP2 consists of 
intensive coursework, preparation, and mentoring to prepare students for 
application to medical school.  Upon completion of the program, successful 
students will be competitive for acceptance to U.S. medical schools.
 
3.  Selectees are assigned to the USU for a 24-month period. Individuals 
selected for the EMDP2 program will remain on active duty while completing 
course work and receive pay, allowances, benefits, and privileges of current 
pay grade.  Selectees will receive permanent change of station orders to USU.  
All school expenses (i.e., books, tuition, labs, etc.) will be paid by USU 
for the entire length of the course.
 
4.  Deadline for submission of applications for FY-16 enrollment is 
1 November 2015.  Application packages must be postmarked on or before the 
deadline date.  No additional documents can be added after this date.  The 
selection board will convene in December 2015 and the selectees will be 
notified via their detailers.  All application requirements are specified in 
reference (a) which can be found at https://www.usuhs.edu/emdp2.
 
5.  Strict adherence to package submission requirements will be a primary 
factor for selection and no waivers will be granted.  The application is a 
reflection of the applicant.  Applicants must review their packages in their 
entirety before submitting.  A minimum score of Good on the latest physical 
fitness assessment and qualifying Scholastic Assessment Test/American College 
Test scores are required.
 
6.  This NAVADMIN does not modify any previous guidance contained in 
reference (a) regarding selective reenlistment bonus (SRB).
 
7.  Applicants assigned to a nuclear training command or who hold a nuclear 
Navy enlisted classification (NEC) (335X, 336X, 338X, 339X) and are applying 
for the FY-16 EMDP2 selection board must obtain conditional release from 
nuclear field duty prior to submitting their application for consideration 
for the FY-16 board per NAVADMIN 070/13.  To obtain a conditional release, an 
applicant must submit an Enlisted Personnel Action Request (NAVPERS 1306/7) 
to the Nuclear Propulsion Program Management (N133) via their detailer, 
Enlisted Nuclear/Submarine Assignment (PERS-403).  The FY-16 EMDP2 selection 
board will only consider nuclear enlisted candidates who have conditional 
release included in their EMDP2 application.
