I'm an M4 in the Nat'l Guard AMEDD program and I want to match into a residency that is not on the critical wartime specialty list. I am OK with not getting any STRAP during residency and not getting any student loan repayment or retention bonuses following residency. My question is, can I still serve in the medical corps in the Army National Guard even if I'm not on the critical wartime shortage list? Can I still be a general medical officer? If any of you are in the Guard (not Reserves or Active Duty) and are specialized in something not on the shortage list (ie: optho, derm, neuro, peds, nuclear med, etc), I would really appreciate your input. Thanks!
