Abstract : Persistent low retention of USAF OB/GYNs has degraded the OB/GYN capability of several USAF medical facilities. In response to manning shortfalls, several USAF hospitals are now establishing very costly local contracts for OB/GYN services. This report examines the factors which have caused the OB/GYN retention problem. It then uses these factors, along with other elements of the healthcare process, to recommend solutions to the retention problem. These solutions will be superior to the current practice of setting up expensive local contracts for OB/GYN services. Keywords: Military personnel, Medical personnel, Personnel retention, Personnel management.
