Scientist Officer Creed

The idea for a Scientist Creed began at the 2012 USPHS Scientific and Training Symposium. LCDR Seth Green and LCDR Mark Miller proposed a category-specific creed as a way to increase Scientist Officer esprit de corps. As a result, a working group was established within the SciPAC Visibility Subcommittee to develop a creed. With the help and input of many dedicated officers and invaluable feedback from the SciPAC Executive Board, the Scientist Creed shown below was approved in 2015.
