Abstract : This study is to provide a description of medical, prior-to-service biographical data, and neuropsychological characteristics of women who enlist in the United States Air Force allowing comparison of women and men of different ethnic backgrounds who do or do not (a) excessively use medical resources, (b) successfully graduate. Subjects were about 1500 female and 800 male recruits entering USAF Basic Military Training (BMT) at Lackland AFB. Data collection included prior-to-service biographical data, scores on MicroCog, medical record data, and graduation/discharge data. Results are being analyzed using cross tabulations, MANOVAS, and regression analysis. Discussion will focus on gender and or ethnic comparisons, implications for recruit screening, and potential intervention strategies.
