Enlisted Airmen may be eligible for medical prep school

Active-duty enlisted Airmen who qualify can now apply for a new pilot program designed to prepare them for medical school, but “intent to apply” emails must be submitted no later than Sept. 6, Air Force Personnel Center officials said Monday.

The Enlisted to Medical Degree Preparatory Program offers enlisted members a chance to attend medical prep school full time for two years, all expenses paid, while maintaining active-duty status and full pay and benefits. The program will include coursework in a traditional classroom setting with structured prehealth advising and formal medical college admission test preparation.

Those selected for the program will transfer on permanent-change-of-station orders to Bethesda, Md., where they will attend school at the Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences. Following successful completion of the 24-month program, graduates will apply for acceptance to the USUHS medical school or civilian medical schools.

Enlisted members from all career fields are eligible to apply, if they meet other criteria in the application guidelines, available on the myPers website. Applicants must be younger than 33 as of June 30, 2014, have at least 36 months but no more than 10 years time in service as of Sept. 30, 2013, and hold a bachelor’s degree from an accredited institution.
