I will be starting medical school this summer and I plan on doing the Mdssp/strap programs throughout med school and residency. I've read/heard that only select specialties are eligible for Strap in the reserves and I do not see internal medicine on this list. Here are my questions:
1) Is strap available to IM residents in the Army Reserves? (I know it is available to NG IM residents)
2)Would I be able to do 4 years of mdssp in the reserves and then transfer to the NG for residency? (if strap is not available to IM residents)

Thank you in advance!

Are you prior service? You're looking at a minimum 17 year military commitment.

Yes I am. Four years of school + three years of residency + 10 year drilling = 17 year commitment, correct?

why would you sign up for reserves if you expect to transfer to guard?
