US Department of Defense

A shared staffing demonstration project with the 1st Medical Group of Langley Air Force Base was approved by the TRICARE Management Activity (TMA) and Air Force Surgeon General (AFSG) in April 2005.  The project identified an opportunity to enter into a pilot sharing initiative for the provision of pathology service.
