The bravest fighters in the world put their lives in your hands. And it’s your job to ensure they have the care they need. Includes paid training (starting pay of $50,000+ per year), competitive salary, accelerated advancement, bonuses of up to $120,000, full medical/dental/vision coverage, 100% tuition assistance, 30 days paid vacation per year, retirement pension, free certifications, excellent job security and potential for world travel. The diverse options available following the initial operational or utilization (OP/UT) tour in the Medical Corps can be summarized in five "tracks". These tracks distinguish differences in job experience categories: (1) Administrative; (2) Clinical; (3) Operational; (4) Education/Academic; and (5) Research. A successful career includes assignment to positions from multiple tracks and serves to broaden experiences. After the initial utilization assignment, or an operational assignment as a surface forces MO, FMF, MO, an undersea MO, or flight surgeon, many pursue specialization through clinical residency training. Specialization is the opportunity to focus one's primary activity on a more circumscribed area and to develop a high level of expertise and confidence there. The residency training period and the specialty utilization tour following it provide two advantages; (1) familiarity with the realities of hospital operation, and (2) the opportunity to establish an enduring reputation in clinical medicine and a credible record of competence and professionalism judges in comparison with one's peers.
