Considering Air National Guard

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I am considering the ANG but wanted to pick some of y'all's brains about it.  I have been a PA for 4 years and have spent all of it in Cardiothoracic and Vascular Surgery as well as UC and rural EM part time on the side.  Where I am geographically located we have an ANG squadron here that utilizes PA's.  I've done some basic research and understand that I would go in on a direct commission as a 2nd Lt. if my memory serves me correctly.  Here are some of the questions I have though.

1.) Is the health services specialty officer program initial training in San Antonio for 5 weeks?  I wasn't sure If my research was correct on this.

2.) What are the typical time commitments?

3.) What is the likelihood of being deployed?

4.) How long are deployments for PA's?

I do apologize in advance if I should know the answers to these questions, just wanted to hear from some of y'all who have gone through it.

Thanks in advance
