can't tell for sure, from what i know that there are certain eligibility requirements (US citizenship), also the match for military programs are earlier than regular match, + there are requirements to work for military organizations after completion of program+ there are lots of paperwork involved while in training.

gotta be a US Citizen first. Also, FMGs/IMGs can't do residencies with the military...unless they do at least 1 year at a civilian program, and then you gotta do a GMO tour. After that, you can do a residency with the armed forces. By the time you do that, you could have finished your civilian residency.

Please don't think of doing something with the armed forces cause it might be easier or you might get a better chance. Do it because you want to serve in the military. If you really want to do something; do a civilian residency and fellowship and then join the military.

Being part of a military program sounds interesting because IMO it could give a resident a good amount of experience and also serve the country. Your pathway into joining the military sound better and more time efficient. thanks for the input

Do it if you truly want to serve , not cause of any other reasons.
