Hi all, Was hoping you could help me with this one: I'm starting med school next fall and have a heavy interest in eventually specializing in aerospace medicine (emphasis on SPACE). I have past experience working for the space program (i.e., nerd) and also recently returned from doing overseas volunteer health work (i.e., love to travel, flexible, am considering the military for the service and aerospace exposure aspect, not the money). Eventual goal? It'd be pretty sweet to be a NASA flight surgeon. 1. I've heard of a few (2-3?) civilian residencies in aerospace med, but how competitive are they? 2. If I go the military route, I am considering either AF HPSP or FAP. I've been reading the posts and have also spoken to others currently in HPSP. I see the benefit of FAP over HPSP based on your prior discussions, but for what I want to do specifically, wouldn't the HPSP offer more aerospace exposure via the SAM the summer after your first year and such? 3. My other concern with going the military route is more emphasis on aviation medicine as opposed to straight space medicine. Does anyone have any suggestions as to how to put the odds in my favor? Any advice related either directly or indirectly to these topics would be helpful. Thanks.
