?s re joining as a surgeon

Discussion in 'Army Professionally Qualified Recruitment' started by caspofungin, Jul 31, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. in the past, i had been thinking about joining the army, but held off, went to med school, worked in the nhs for a while, went to the states and did a surgical residency.

    now i'm done, and am once again thinking about joining the army, hopefully ramc as a surgeon. i've looked at the official website, but didn't really get too much info from it.

    can anyone here please let me know a little about what life as a military surgeon is like? just a doc in green or fundamentally different?

    thx in advance
  2. You'll work as part of a military team in an MDHU (Ministry of Defence Hospital Unit) located within an NHS Trust.

    You'll work along side your NHS colleagues - but youll be deployed on Operational Tours when instructed by LAND via DMETA.

    PM me and Ill get you a contact local to your area - or contact the RAMC Recruiting team at Camberley.

    As a trained surgeon, you'll be looking at receiving a 'Golden Hello'.
