Hi everyone,

I've been doing some research about the military match and the potential for matching into a civilian sponsored residency. I know that taking a CS residency slot increases your ADSO (if you come from USUHS or HPSP), but by how much? I couldn't find that specific detail on this forum so far in my searches.

Thank you.

If you're going to do a civilian residency, hope that it is not sponsored. Just take the civi pay up front and spend less time in the military after.

this.

best career option I have seen- navy 3 year HPSP -> civilian deferred residency -> civilian deferred fellowship -> 3 year AD payback as subspecialist -> return to fellowship institution as staff.

3 years to get your clinical "wings", not enough time to get PCSd or f'd with (if they allow you to take boards before operational assignments they won't have 2 years to send you out) and barely enough time for a deployment. it's almost a way to get your resume buffed to then return and demand more staff pay that if you simply stayed at your original institution.

It increases your ADSO the same way a military sponsored residency does. However, the payback doesn't start until you return to active duty as opposed to concurrent payback in military residency. This info comes from the thread below.

Just to make sure I'm understanding you correctly, if one were to do a three year residency (post-internship, ex., psych) on a 3-year HPSP contract, you would owe 6 years of ADSO afterwards? That's assuming you could find no way to avoid a civilian sponsored residency...

Thanks to @HighPriest and @Homunculus for your help, too!

I do not know of many if any civilian sponsored residencies in any of the military branches. Now civilian sponsored fellowships are fairly common in all branches. What I've seen is civilian deferred residencies and a smattering of civilian deferred fellowships.

The Army has an ER fellowship in Augusta combined with MCG. Payback works the same as regular active duty.

Unless I'm misreading the AF HPERB (here: http://www.airforcemedicine.af.mil/Portals/1/Documents/Phys_Ed_Branch/HPERB/CONSOLIDATED_HPERB/HPERB_CONSOLIDATED.pdf), there are a smattering of civilian sponsored residencies (and a lot in psychiatry).
