I found this: http://www.afa.org/magazine/sept2006/0906congress.pdf "An incentive package approved by the Senate would: Double, to $30,000 a year, the stipend for HPSP scholarships. Increase to $60,000,from $22,000, the maximum student loan repayment, to entice more medical and dental school graduates into service. Increase to $45,000, from $15,000, the maximum annual grants for doctors who choose to complete residency training in the civilian sector before military service. Increase to $25,000, from $10,000, the amount of special pay offered to selected reserve health professionals trained in critically short wartime specialties. Enhance dental accession bonus authority. Allow a new accession bonus of up to $400,000 for physicians and dentists in war-critical specialties. Enticed from civilian life, the doctors would promise to serve at least four years. Specialists who might qualify include maxillofacial surgeons, thoracicsurgeons, andorthopedic surgeons. The House version of the 2007 defense authorization bill had not endorsed most of these adjustments."
