I am a 4th year medical student. I joined the wrong branch for me. I want to switch from the AF to the Navy. All I need is a Navy HPSP student who wants to switch to the AF. Are you out there? Praying/ hoping.

Kind of curious as to why? Air Force GME is dying/dead compared to the other services.

It appears to me that they just got a 10-15 year head start on their version of rightsizing.

My guess is that the OP is doing it for LOVE.

Or for PM&R. The thought crossedy mind as a med student.
Transferring to Army for PMR would make sense. The Navy doesn't have PMR...which is why I'm no longer in the Navy.

Oh, I read it wrong. I thought you were trying to get INTO the USAF. Good choice trying to go Navy, but Army is still probably better purely from a numbers game/residency slots, unless you're trying to do something less competitive anyways.

Are you referring to the eventual overall plan to phase out GME entirely save a few specialties critical to operations and shift to a nearly exclusive civilian workforce?
