I'm currently a pre-med looking into HSPS. One of my main concerns is the issue of residency placement. I have a few questions about this. - If for some reason (say, in the navy), I spend my four years doing an internship and GMO tours without ever doing a residency, will it be more difficult for me to get a civilian residency after I'm out of the military? - Is it usual for those who don't match with the military residency of their choice to be forced into some other specialty that they don't want, or is this something that has pretty much been corrected? - For people who are out or almost out of the military, do you think that having a military residency, then working in military rotations, tours or hospitals in some way leaves you unprepared for private practice after the military? Thanks a lot.
