    Good Evening,

    It's that GME deadline time, so I had to brush up on my commitment guidance again.


    I am reading these again. I will be asking the Correspondence Folks later again, too.

    HPSP 4 years = 4 years ADSO owed.
    1 year internship --> 2 years Internal Medicine --> 3 year Tour (have 1 year ADSO remaining) --> Return for fellowship (2 years)

    Question:
    At the end of fellowship, do I have 2 more years of obligated time or 3 years. My understanding is 2 because the HPSP time is
    served concurrent, but maybe I am missing something.

    I appreciate the time. Thank you.

      I agree that you will have 2 years left to serve. You gain 2 year minimum for FTIS fellowship. You had 1 year remaining but it can be served concurrently with FTIS training.

      Prior to fellowship you will be sent a document with down to the month detail of your obligated service. You will sign acknowledging you agree.

        Busy with clinic, I should have posted earlier, yeah I talked to correspondence and indeed 2 years. It's good to get a second confirmation!

        Thanks!

          Check and doublecheck the actual paperwork contract you receive.

          If I had a quarter for every messed up contract that the Navy special pay people have put in front of me, I'd have enough for a couple candy bars.
