I was finally accepted into the FAP program (after almost a year of applying...my recruiter sucked), and am currently a PGY-2 in a civilian program. I was previously a DMO in the Navy for four years, and separated because they didn't offer me an outservice position. When I finish my residency in 2015, I'll be going directly to active duty, but first, I'd like to complete a 1 year hyperbaric fellowship. Does anyone know if the Navy might offer me a 1 year deferment to complete this fellowship? I already asked my recruiter if they'd extend my FAP contract, but he said no. Does anyone have experience with this? Thanks.
