Provide Oversight for AUX Health Services Missions
• The Division Chief Auxiliary Health Services (DVC-HM) serves as the Chief
Medical Officer (CMO) for the Auxiliary and shall oversee all Auxiliarist
medical support activities.
• As Chief Medical Officer, DVC-HM serves as the primary liaison between
Auxiliary medical support personnel and USCG Office of Health Services
(CG-112).
• CMO attempts to assure that all Auxiliarist medical support personnel and
those providing administrative medical support on the National Staff:
1. Are only participating in authorized CG and Auxiliary Health Care
Missions - and thus have liability coverage while performing their
medical support missions.
2. Are following proper Auxiliary medical support mission policies and
procedures
3. Are coordinating their efforts across different Auxiliary National
Departments in order to avoid duplication of medical support missions
