TA Medical Support Officer

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. Hi, I'm hoping to join 243 Field Hospital at some point in the next year, as I would like to do something part time that I'm interested in, and that makes a difference. I've always thought about joining the army, and had initially thought that I might want to join as a driver or a clerk (I'm not doing a medical degree), but I've recently looked more closely at the job of an Officer in the RAMC.

    So do Volunteer Field Hospitals need MSOs? By which I mean, is it likely that if I met the physical standards and passed selection, they would have a position for me? The only other unit local to me is an infantry one, which I'm less interested in.

    Also, what would my duties as an MSO in the TA be?

    Cheers,
