    PENSACOLA, Fla. (April 7, 2021) - The Navy Medicine Operational Training Command (NMOTC) information technology (IT) team received the Navy Medicine Capt. Joan Dooling Award for Information Professional Excellence for the year 2020.

    NMOTC provides professional, technical and consultative services for operationally related Fleet and Fleet Marine Force medical matters worldwide; this includes education and training programs for medical department personnel in various operational disciplines. The NMOTC IT team is comprised of 30 contract and civilian staff providing technical support to 16 training centers within 6 detachments and dispersed across 19 geographic locations.

    The award cited that the NMOTC IT team’s dedication to readiness and support of education and training to generate the Ready Medical Force is uncompromised and without question. In any given year their accomplishments would be worthy of accolade and acknowledgement, however given the extraordinary additional burden imposed during this period, they have overcome every obstacle and are most highly deserving of the CAPT Joan Dooling Information Professional Team of the Year award, reads the citation.

    “The NMOTC IT team are force multipliers that generated a 'Ready Medical Force.',” said Capt. Matthew Hebert, NMOTC commanding officer. “They have risen to a whole new level during the occasion of the global COVID-19 pandemic and implemented new systems and policies to ensure staff are enabled to proceed with the training mission, all while abiding with Force Health Protection Conditions requirements. These efforts have only been successful by focused task organization, cumulative personal initiative, and forthright perseverance. I am incredibly proud of this team and what they bring to the Navy Medicine fight!"

    The Capt. Joan Dooling Award for Information Professional Excellence was established to recognize and encourage notable contributions in accomplishing Navy Medicine's mission by spotlighting the outstanding contributions of individuals or teams of individuals in the IM/IT medical, operational, and research communities. Capt. Dooling exemplified those characteristics with her groundbreaking efforts in the field of IM/IT supporting Navy Medicine's mission.

    “To be considered for nomination in and of itself was a great honor but to be the recipient of the final Joan Dooling award is truly humbling as I am confident there were many other teams throughout this record year of challenges who were just as capable of receiving this award,” said Victoria Burke, the NMOTC Chief Information Officer. “Many leaders understand that workplace appreciation is an investment in our people and one of the most genuine ways to demonstrate gratitude for specific actions, however, it is an entirely different level to receive direct appreciation from senior leaders all the way up through the Surgeon General. This has been a tremendous achievement and we look forward to accomplishing technical support together in the years ahead through continued partnership between readiness commands and operational medicine on the Defense Health Agency network infrastructure."
