What follows is a selection of the various financial support avenues available for students in the Reserve or Guard, including education and related finances:
Serving part time means you are part of a global, highly qualified team of military physicians and healthcare professionals. You may serve in a military medical center, clinic, field hospital or community center. You could also have the opportunity to serve in a civilian facility, hospital or clinic, or a location close to your home. In any case, you will be in a learning environment where creativity and leadership skills are tested and pushed into new dimensions of care. In addition, it is important to understand that a physician’s specialty and need for that specialty may have a bearing on acceptance into a Service branch.
Medical students and residents serving part time can participate in stipend programs to help pay for schooling. Regardless of where you are in training, a part-time service commitment provides flexibility, invaluable experience and other benefits.
