As a medical recruiter, some of the most frequently asked questions
that I hear when speaking with doctors,
- What will I do in the Army?
- You will be a Doctor, it doesn't make sense for you or for the
Army to utilize you for anything other than what you have dedicated
your life and education to. As a Physician in the Army, you will
see and treat patients exactly how you would in the civilian
healthcare market, the only difference will be your patient
population will consist of Active Duty Soldiers and their
- Will I have to go to Basic Training?
- NO, you are a Medical Professional and will be treated as such.
You will attend an introductory course to Army Medicine called
Basic Officers Leaders Course. It is a 5 week course at Ft. Sam
Houston, TX that is primarily classroom, it will teach you the
basics of being a Medical Officer in the US Army. No Drill
Sergeants to be found. The course is taught by current Medical
Officers and Non-Commissioned Officers.
- Can I continue my education if I should choose to?
- Absolutely, any career progression not only benefits you, it
also benefits the Army as you can bring your continuing education
and knowledge back to us, improving the overall quality of Army
medicine. Best of all, the Army will typically pay all costs for
any board certifications, continuing education, and travel/board
for the extra training.
- How long will I have to serve in the Army?
- Typically our contracts range from 2-4 years but can go up to 6
years should you choose. You can elect for your annual bonus that
will be paid every year of your contract on the anniversary of the
date you graduated Basic Officers Leader Course. Or you could elect
for $250K student loan repayment that will be paid up to $40K per
year on the anniversary of your graduation from Basic Officers
- Will I be deployed to a combat zone?
- These days the likelihood of deploying is very low. However as
a Soldier, this is sometimes part of the job. If you wanted to
deploy to extend your experience and range of medicine, the
opportunity is there, you simply would need to volunteer. Also, not
all deployments are to a combat zone, in fact less than half of the
deployments are. There will be many opportunities for you to deploy
on behalf of humanitarian missions all over the world should you
choose to take advantage of it.
- What are the qualifications?
- You must be under the age of 59, be a US Citizen, and be in
good health. Anything outside of these requirements can be reviewed
on a case by case basis.
If you have any more questions, feel free to contact me at any
time. Call, text, or email.
