That's goin to vary greatly depending on training (general, specialist, GPR?), location (midwest vs. east coast vs. suburban vs. rural), and type of position taken (associate or private practioner?).
GENERALLY, the numbers thrown out are in the $100,000-$140,000 range.

Plus, if you decide to specialize within the military, some of those(I've even heard of cases where all) years of specialty will count toward your years of obligation.
My recruiter told me about a kid that is getting ready to do his oral surgery residency with the Army and that the four years that he does that will count as his 4 years of obligation. This is obviously not always the case, but it can be, depending on the military's need.comatose said:That's not what the recruiter told me. He said that specializing in the military adds additional payback time to the required time you must serve from the scholarship. Only the AEGD counts as payback time. You might want to check up on this as I'm not 100% certain.
