I just recieved the HPSP scholarship for the Navy and will recieve the Army one later this week. What should I do? I am 27 years old and single. Either way I am going to be a old man when I'm done. Is it that bad? After reading alot of the posts on this site, it sounds like it's horrible. Residency sucks in both the military and civilian world. Basically, I'll be doing four years as a physician somewhere other that where I want to settle down. That doesn't sound to bad to me, with no debts and all. Also...I recieved some advice from a physician who did his time in the Air Force. He said that if he had to choose between the Army and Navy he would go with the Army. This is because of the larger opportunity of residency and not having to do a GMO tour. Basically, he thinks I'll be able to get a job easier with 4 years experience in that field. He highly recomends military medicine and has no negative feelings about it at all. Is he nuts or sane? What do you guys think of this and what I should do? Any advice would be appreciated.
