I am currently a MS2 in and I was hoping that someone might have some advice/guidance. I am 23 years old and I have about 500 hours pilot in command of small single engine airplanes. I absolutely love aviation and I have always wanted to be a doctor (not sure what kind) and at the same time fly fighters in the military (very opposite goals - I know). I just assumed that they were too different to ever happen so I figured that I would apply for a HPSP spot in med school and try to become a flight surgeon (that way I could at least ride in fighters). However, in searching over the internet, I came upon this website and many other examples of physicians who were actually rated pilots in the military. This is very encouraging! I've heard of examples of Air Force docs who got accepted into the pilot physician program and even a senior med student applying to an Air National Guard's F-16 unit (Capt Davenport)! (http://www.f-16.net/interviews_article30.html) Full time physician and fighter pilot on the side! Amazing! At this point in my life I am finished with my Navy HPSP application and have not been accepted yet. I will probably have the christmas break and January to think about what I'm going to do but I really have no idea. There seems to be too many options and every one less clear than the first one. Basically I want to be very involved in aviation (flight surgeon and a rated fighter pilot if possible - the recruiter laughed at me when I told him this one). I would really appreciate any advice and guidance that you could give. Especially when it comes to which branch of the military would be the best route for acheiving my goal (ie. Navy, Air Force, or Air National guard) Thanks for your time in this matter.
