EXPERT FIELD MEDICAL BADGE UPDATE (G3). The new Expert Field Medical Badge Test standards were implemented effective March 2019.
Four installations (Fort Bragg, Fort Sill, Fort Carson, and Germany) have hosted test events under the new standards.
Some of the major changes include: the APFT is now the first tested event and requires a score of 80% in each category; the written test has also been ramped up from 60-80 questions up with new exam questions;
The fifth publication of the study guide is published and available for train-up; the Night Land Navigation also had significant changes moving to the Expert Infantry Badge standard of testing which transitioned to four navigation points not including the end point with only three hours to complete.
Through all of these changes, the Test Control Office (TCO) notes that the 12 mile forced march had significant increases in pass rates from 85-96% which we assess is due to the increased APFT standards.
The TCO encourages all candidates to use the study guide as they train for the test event. To hear more about these changes from Fort Carson's perspective, see the article at the following link:
More locally, the 32d Medical Brigade is scheduled to host their EFMB in September 2019. Visit the EFMB TCO page for more information: https://www.cs.amedd.army.mil/efmb.aspx. The written test study guide is located on the TASKS/WRITTEN TEST Tab.
