Hello! I will be applying to med school in the fall of 2003 and have a few questions about the military. 1. After completion of a residency, what can I expect, in general, in the amount of compensation in comparision to private practice... 50%, 80%? 2. Are military residencies considered to be as good in regards to quality as community or hospital based residencies? 3. In the summers during medical school, what does active duty consist of? A recruiter told me that the only way you can tell you are on active duty is that the amount you are paid increases. 4. What is the quality of education at USUHS considered to be in comparision to most other Universities? 5. If accepted at USUHS, will I decrease my chances of getting into a my residency of choice. These are just a few of my questions and I welcome any input that anyone has in regards to the military. That you in advance for your responses.
