The Army isn’t looking for just anyone to treat its soldiers and their family members. Aspiring healthcare professionals must distinguish themselves mentally and physically, and always push themselves to be the best.
For future and current medical and dental school students, the Health Professions Scholarship Program (HPSP) offers two-, three- and four-year scholarships (as available). The HPSP covers civilian-school tuition, pays for fees, provides a monthly $2,600+ stipend and includes a signing bonus under certain conditions.
If you are in the Health Professions Scholarship Program (HPSP) or the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS), or if you are receiving a stipend for Reserve service, you will fully focus on your studies while in medical school. During this time, you will also receive valuable training that will serve you well no matter what career path you take.
You never stop learning as a member of the Army Medical Department. Whether you are look to progress to the next level in your career or move into another specialty, the Army and army Reserve have many excellent education programs to help you do that.
If you are a licensed practitioner and are interested in career in the Army or Army Reserve, the steps you will need to take to serve your country in your chosen profession.
Sponsored training in civilian fellowships is available in certain subspecialties. Our fellows are accepted to many excellent training institutions including Johns Hopkins University, Stanford, University of California, Duke University, National Institutes of Health, University of Texas, University of Virginia, University of Pennsylvania, Emory University, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, University of Washington, and Yale University.
RESIDENCY & MATCH DAY
Health Professions Scholarship Program (HPSP) and Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS) students have the same chances of getting their residency of choice as civilian students, and the Army will never dictate which specialty you choose.
If you are interested in research opportunities, the Army offers specific benefits that aren’t always available to civilian physicians. For example, you might find yourself working with a range of partners beyond academia, including the Department of Defense and foreign governments.
Army healthcare workers have played a role in nearly every major modern medical advancements. In the early 1800s, Surgeon General Joseph Lovell studied the connections between weather patterns and disease. In 1900, Maj. Walter Reed headed up the Yellow Fever Commission in Cuba, discovering that mosquitoes carried the disease and saving countless lives.
