Have any Navy HPSP students ever done a 2 year GMO tour, defer for civilian residency, and then finish their active duty commitment with a final 2 year GMO tour? I'm wondering if it's possible vs. having to do all GMO time lumped together... Also, does active duty time accrue if you do a Navy residency after your active duty time (can you do a Navy residency in the reserves)?

So, this is a bit of a catch-22 situation. In order to have civilian deferments available the specialty usually needs to be undermanned. In order to go directly from residency to GMO (which is so rare it approaches zero and I would not recommend for multitude of reasons) the specialty needs to be overmanned. So, for this to actually be feasible you’d need your specialty to be undermanned when you started residency, but to grow so much while you are in residency to become overmanned.

Does active duty time accrue? Are you asking if you accrue more obligation for residency? If so, yes.

Can you do Navy residency while in the Reserve? No, not really. You’d have to apply as a civilian and Navy has too many active duty trainees to take any civilians right now.
