    Is it possible to apply for a ROTC scholarship/attend any branch of ROTC with the intention to become a healthcare officer (ex. Microbiologist, Environmental Scientist, Radiation Health Officer), or do you have to go through college first and then apply to go through the five weeks of training?

    I don't know if this is what you mean, but I'm in AROTC on scholarship and on a "healthcare professional" path, going to be a Veterinarian. So in that aspect, it is possible.

    Thanks! What I saw from the navy/air force's websites is that, with healthcare professions, you would have to attend a five week training sessions after going to college (they didn't mention anything about rotc or service academies on those pages).

    Of the professions you listed, the environmental science officer can be achieved with just an undergrad. The rest require graduate degrees. In the Army it AOC 72D.
