As I start preparing to apply in the next year, I have noticed a lack of information about what USUHS is actually like day to day, and how it differs from civilian programs. Are the "summer experiences" and things like jungle medicine actually giving useful skills? Does it feel more like a military course or like medical school?

I'm prior service, and am pretty aware of what military medicine is (and is not). Almost everything I see online discusses the financial and commitment aspects of USUS and not what the school actually has to offer.

following thread, although I wonder if would get more traction in the School Specific or MilMed channel.
