Benefits of the Military

Even though you will be busy, you will still have leisure time as a military physician. Plus, you’ll have access to travel opportunities and amenities that make it easy to relax, explore hobbies and have fun with family and friends.

Vacation Time

Physicians receive 2.5 days of paid vacation for every month served on Active Duty. Plus, unlike in the civilian sector, sick days do not count as vacation time.  

Travel Opportunities

As a member of the Military, you will have the chance to see the world, and those opportunities aren't just limited to deployment. For example, you can take advantage of space-available travel, which allows you to fly for free if there is room on military flights.
