From the summary: "Previous Center for Naval Analyses (CNA) studies, the Health Professions’ Retention-Accession Incentive Study (HPRAIS) [1-2] and the Life-Cycle-Cost (LCC) study [3-4], showed that: 1. Growing fully trained military physician specialists is very expensive, and the Services need to increase their return on these investments (i.e., increase physician retention)[3-4]. 2. Most uniformed physician specialties are not very responsive to increases in special pays—it takes large increases in pay to modestly increase retention [1-2]."
