I think he meant after intern year. i.e. grad from med school, do your 1 year intern and then do a GMO tour--in which case the gmo tour counts as payback so if you did 1 year gmo then yes you would owe 3 years follwoing residency. GMO counts towards your commitment. some people never do residency and just do gmo after intern. then they get out of the military and do their residency.USAF MD '05 said:Nope- Intern year, you neither pay back or incur additional time. You still owe 4. Hope this helps, Steve
Here is a short glimpse of my life as a Navy flight surgeon (FS) :tragicallyhip'n said:If you are assigned to a Navy GMO year immediately following medical school, does this count as one year of your payback? Would this mean that you only owe 3 years following residency? Thanks for your help.
