Scientist Category Listserv

All Scientist Officers are encouraged to subscribe to the Scientist Category listserv. The purpose of the listserv is to provide a mechanism for Scientist Officers to receive and share information relevant to the USPHS Commissioned Corps Scientist Category. The SciPAC is responsible for managing and maintaining the Scientist listserv and uses the listserv to notify officers of upcoming SciPAC meetings and events. Instructions for signing up listserv are provided on the Scientist Category listserv page.
