I am curious, I have read a lot of negative things about millitary medicine here and would like to see if there is anyone who has had a good experience with it.

I'm working with a LT COL from the Army and he loves his prior experience as a general ophthalmologist for the Army. He did over 900 cataract surgeries, plastics, glaucoma, retina, etc... He's now training to be a retina specialist.

One of the faculty at Iowa served 23 years in the Navy. He enjoyed working for the Navy as a GMO and ophthalmologist.

I'll let you know in about 15 months. ;)

I had prior service in the Army Medical Department, and I can't wait to go back on active duty as a physician. To be honest, I've met some docs in the military who couldn't wait to become civilians again, I've seen military docs who couldn't imagine doing anything else, and I've seen docs who left the service, hated the civilian side and re-entered the military. It probably all depends on the individual.
