Hello, I have been considering the military after I graduate PA school because I have a significant amount of debt and I think it would be a great experience. Can someone explain the process of joining the National Guard as a PA with no previous military experience? Also, what is the commitment and role of a PA in the guard? Are there significant benefits for loan repayment? I would rather hear this first from someone who has been in this situation rather than a recruiter. Thanks!
Hello, I am looking to find out some more information on what IPAP was actually like for those whom recently have gone through it. I am putting my packet in this cycle and haven't been able to find very much information on how the program is ran itself. I am currently an SMP Cadet with 3 years as 11b for the National Guard and am trying to weigh a civilian school vs. IPAP Basically, what I am looking for is: What a typical day at IPAP was like? Where did you get to do your clinical rotations? Do you choose where to do clinical? Is there a lot of power point learning or is it problem based? Is it pretty laid back or is someone constantly jumping down your throat? Where you close with your fellow classmates? How is the technology (i.e. learning aids/simulations)? What was your favorite part? Was there any leave? (Exodus)? And finally... If I am an O-1 while I go through do I get paid as an O-1? (I am assuming yes and it may be a dumb question, but I am literally getting no answers from anyone!)
