I just found a website that says an active duty second lieutenant going to Uniformed Services makes 37,500 dollars a year. Is that true???? That seems like alot of money for someone to get going to med. school! Actual sentence: If your grades are high enough and you do well on the Medical Candidate Aptitude Test (MCAT), and the Army has an opening, you may be selected to attend the fully-funded medical training offered by the Uniformed Services Health University as an active duty Second Lieutenant making over $37,500 per year. At the end of medical school, you would be a Captain in the Medical Corps and be (or nearly be) debt free. At that time your pay will be nearly $55,000 and you would also receive incentive pay of up to nearly $40,000, for a total starting pay as a doctor of nearly $100,000. Oh, by the way, military doctors don't have to pay malpractice insurance - that's worth a lot of money!!
