GS-600 and GS-700, Medical Qualifications Standards Group

We plan to review the qualification requirements for the occupations on the attached list. We periodically review and update qualification standards, as we realize the knowledge, skills, abilities and competencies needed may have changed as a result of new technology, laws, educational requirements, and work responsibilities. It is time to review the qualifications for the Federal medical occupations.

Please send your recommendations regarding needed changes in the areas of education, work experience, licensure, or credentialing requirements, by March 22, 2002 to:

Suzy M. Barker
Division Director for Examination and Qualification Policy
