We are seeking a Medical Review Officer to process medical waivers at the USAREC HQ located in Fort Knox, KY. Services are required to protect against development of a large backlog of, and turnaround times for, processing of medical waivers. Medical waivers are an important means of increasing enlistments in the US Army and US Army Reserve. The three largest medical categories for waivers are ophthalmology, orthopedics, and psychiatric. Experience and demonstrated special skills in these areas is important. Work flow fluctuates throughout the year. These services permit a means for surge capacity to perform medical waiver reviews when anticipated and unanticipated gaps in capabilities of current assets occur. The Command Surgeon office is currently unable to process the increasing volume of medical waiver reviews required in the absence of a staff member, and at times of seasonal and random variations in increased demand. Historically between 45 and 60 waiver review and recommendation actions were completed within an 8-hour workday.

Duties include, but are not limited to the following:
Conduct medical waiver reviews.
Review military entrance physical and related medical documents of accessions candidates disqualified by a U.S. Military Entrance Processing Command (MEPCOM) Chief Medical Officer (CMO), in order to recommend to the command surgeon whether the Army should grant or withhold a waiver.
Services include the employment of sound professional medical judgment in order to make an appropriate waiver recommendation to the Command Surgeon based on the supplied documentation. The waiver recommendation will be recorded in proper format, with any needed remarks, on the electronic SF 507, and the form transmitted electronically to the Command Surgeon for each case.
