    Can someone give me information on AMEDD and medical school?

    I can’t seem to find much information on AMEDD and medical school. I’m wondering if it would be a good route to go if I don’t get the HPSP. Do they pay for all of medical school? Will I be required to do a weekend a month while in medical school? Thanks for any advice!
