Abstract : The purpose of this study was to construct an ordered list of Army Medical Department enlisted occupational specialties for the prioritization of review activities in the 91 Career Management Field. A panel of seven experts identified 10 factors pertinent to the Army medical mission. Using the Iterative Decision Method (IDM), experts rendered sets of independent and group revised judgments for the priority of 30 military occupational specialties. The final Criterion List of medical jobs was examined to assess the impact of various decision factors at both the individual and group levels. Results indicated that the list was valid and defensible.
