I'm certain that this information is out on the internet somewhere; however, as I have read many questions about medical school options in the military, I thought there might potentially be interest in the forum community on other professional jobs (health-related) in the military. I recall having allopathic (MD) and dental care throughout my time in the service, but out of my own curiosity, and what I assume is the curiosity of some of the prospective cadets/mids on this forum, I was wondering if anyone had any insight into what opportunities are out there for those in some of the other health professions. Specifically, is it possible to be a podiatrist (DPM) in the service, and are there available options for the service to pay for this type of education (podiatric medical school)? What about osteopathic physicians or optometrists? I seem to recall there being optometrists in the USAF, but I don't recall ever seeing a DO physician, and I don't think my base had a podiatry clinic (although, who knows, I never had issues with my feet). I'm fairly certain that chiropractors don't serve on active duty (or at least didn't a few years ago), as there is some question as to the benefit of the services they provide. As there might very well be a student interested in becoming a podiatrist (DPM), DO physician, or optometrist in the service, I think some discussion on the availabe options might be helpful. I suppose we should include PA and NP opportunities as well.
