Commissioned Corps of the U.S. Public Health Service

Scientist Professional Advisory Committee

Officer Basic Course (OBC) Graduates

The Officer Basic Course is 2-week mandatory training for all USPHS Commissioned Corps officers called to extended active duty after 30 September 2008. The OBC is an official Temporary Duty Assignment (TDY) that provides a comprehensive orientation to Commissioned Corps officers. At least one member of the SciPAC Career Development Subcommittee’s OBC Training Workgroup attends the OBC open house and graduation ceremony each month (when an OBC training is being held and when a Scientist Officer is attending the course) to welcome new active duty Scientist Officers to the USPHS Commissioned Corps and to answer any category-specific questions. At each graduation ceremony, the OBC Training Workgroup presents a personalized letter from the Chief Professional Officer, CAPT John Eckert, and a Scientist Category coin to each new Scientist Officer.
