Military medicine allows you to serve your country, see the world, and accomplish things you never thought possible. That being said, it is not for everyone. Here are the things that you need to know before becoming a military doctor.
First, flexibility is paramount. There is no such thing as being part-time military. Second there are unique military medicine challenges, such as the additional training you'll receive, including in trauma, weapons, and chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive emergencies.
Third, career pyramids in the military are tracks that prepare you to go into different areas of practice as a physician after medical school. The pyramids are command, academic, master clinician, and operational.
Fourth, relationships are complicated as a military physician. As an officer, you are prohibited from dating other enlisted personnel.
