FAP pay currently $40,909. See http://www.navy.com/healthcare/physicians
You *always* run the risk of being called up once you're on the books. While the likelihood may be low, it can happen, so I mentioned the possibility. I once worked with a physician who was pulled out of EM residency to go to Iraq 1.
