Can someone join the Air Force reserve, and sign the contract to become just a flight surgeon even though they have completed residency (or do they need to not have been specialized already)? Would the reserve FS also get flight time or would they just be on the ground in the clinic 24/7? In the AF would a flight surgeon be required to conduct an internship? Also, what are all the classes taken to prepare to become a flight surgeon in the AF? I had though it was just AMP (the 6 week course) and that S.E.R.E. was just for pilots and air crew. The AF flight surgeons also do not get stick time, right (since where in the AMP course would you receive the flight training)? Since most of the AF is now either going to be F-22 or F-35 would you get stick time even on a C-130, Helo, or V-22 or is the AF culture for flight surgeons just to be passengers on board. I know a FS would never be allowed in a F-22 or F-35, NEVER. (The days of FS sitting in the back of a F-15F never existed, right?). Does HPSP or something similar exist with the Air National Guard and if so how does their training of flight surgeons go?
