Abstract : This thesis examines the Total Health Care Support Readiness Requirement (THCSRR) model, a new tool which has been developed to estimate the level and composition of medical manpower readiness requirements for the Navy. A brief description of the events leading up to the creation of the model is presented to explain not only the impetus behind it but also the environment under which it was constructed. The process of preparing the Program Objectives Memoranda (POMs) is then described, with the primary focus on Navy medical manpower. The primary components, underlying principals and assumptions behind the model am explained in detail, followed an assessment of the principal drivers of the model and tradeoff possibilities which may be wed in future make-buy decisions for Navy Medicine. Finally, conclusions reached from the analytical research and implications for the future based on this model are addressed.
