Officer Development School (ODS)

ODS is a 5-week Naval officer training course designed to provide newly commissioned Navy officers with the basic information required to understand Naval culture and help create future Navy leaders to support the fleet. Ideally, ODS will be the first Active Duty Training (ADT) completed by each medical student, although it is not uncommon for medical students to complete ODS at a later date. ODS is conducted at Officer Training Command (OTC) Newport in Newport, Rhode Island. Additional information, instruction, and available course dates are available at this Navy Accessions webpage.

As well as the formal Officer Training Command website

Navy Reimbursement Guide

Questions?  Email USN.HPSP-ADT.Reimburse@health.mil or call 1-301-295-9978.

CAC Card

All HPSP students are required to obtain a military ID card.  This card will help you access MODS on government access computers, set up LHI and AKO accounts, and give you access to military bases.  To obtain a CAC Card you must visit your local Defense Enrollment Eligibility Reporting System (DEERS) office.  

The DEERS office is also where you can register dependents and obtain family member ID cards.  It is important to prioritize this step as it can take some time and the closest DEERS office may be far away.
