To get straight to the point, my ultimate goal in life is to be a physician. I'm in rotc with a 4 year scholarship, and I know that I could have the army pay for med school too. That would however require a much greater time commitment to the army that wouldn't begin until after residency when I am about 30 years old. My other option is I commission as a normal officer, do my 4 years in a random branch, then go to med school post-army. I don't know how as a 20-year old I'm supposed to decide if I want to be in the army until I'm 40. Does anyone know army physicians I could reach out to?
