Military residencies do not count as payback for HPSP. In fact you gain obligation for each year of residency PGY2 and above. This obligation can be paid concurrently with the HPSP obligation. Every physician I have seen leave the military has left with a civilian job already lined up.
I am currently in the ROTC and i received a line scholarship and i am ready to sign my contract, something keeps going off in my head since last week. why? simply because i realized that an Active duty contract in the ROTC is not a smart move specially if you are planning getting in Med-school. i worked hard for this. top OML in my school and #2 in the whole Battalion, but i just realized i was not smart enough in planning my undergrad. Also i am currently in the National guard and i ETS a month after i graduate reason why i asked myself if it's even worthy doing it after reading all these posts here. I love my country, the Army and i also the medical field (actual LPN). My question is to know if i can still go to med school after receiving a GRFD? if yes, how is it going to work for someone who owe 6 years? or do i cancel the contract wait until i ETS and then apply?
please i need answers!!
