32 CFR 728.24 - Navy and Marine Corps Officer Candidate Programs.
Members of the Reserve Officers Candidate Program and Platoon Leaders Class are entitled to the same medical and dental benefits as are provided members of the Navy and Marine Corps Reserve Components. Accordingly, the provisions of § 728.21 are applicable for such members. Additionally, candidates for, or persons enrolled in such programs are authorized access to naval MTFs for the purpose of conducting special physical examination procedures which have been requested by the Commander, Naval Medical Command to determine their physical fitness for appointment to, or continuation in such a program. Upon a request from the individual's commanding officer, the officer in charge of cognizant Navy and Marine Corps recruiting stations, or officer selection officer, naval MTFs are authorized to admit such persons when, in the opinion of the cognizant officer, hospitalization is necessary for the proper conduct of the special physical examinations. Hospitalization should be kept to a minimum and treatment other than for humanitarian reasons, except as provided in this part, is not authorized.
