Law and Medical
The Army offers unique opportunities for the officer to work in the fields of Law and Medicine.
The JAG Corps is a wide-ranging practice that includes military law and criminal prosecution to international law and legal assistance — both in the U.S. and abroad.
Being a part of the JAG Corps offers the unique opportunity of serving one's country as an Officer in the Army while quickly developing professional skills. This is exactly why JAG Corps Attorneys gain a valuable career edge and an excellent starting point for a career in public service. In addition, JAG Corps Attorneys can choose to serve either full-time in Active Duty, or part-time in the Army Reserves.
The JAG Corps is much more than the legal arm of the Army. JAG Corps Attorneys are exposed to a wide variety of legal work with wide-reaching impact in just a few short years.
The JAG Corps can also work with you to help pay for your Law School.

As a physician in the Army Medical Corps you'll be working alongside professionals who are every bit as committed and focused as you. What's more, you won't have to worry about starting a practice, establishing a patient base, hiring staff or purchasing equipment because you'll already be part of one of the best worldwide Health Care networks around. As a Physician and Officer, you'll do much more than practice medicine. You'll be trained as a leader and you'll be given the opportunity to participate in pioneering medical discovery and research.
In addition to a generous and competitive benefits package, you'll have the opportunity to continue your education through continuing education courses, seminars and conferences. You can decide to either serve full time as an Officer on Active Duty or maintain your private practice and serve part time in the Army Reserve.
Either way, becoming an Army physician gives you an experience you can't match anywhere in the civilian world. It can help you get where you want to be financially, professionally and personally. And that's part of a philosophy of the U.S. Army.
The Army is currently offering a $20,000 bonus to Medical and Dental students with the Health Professions Scholarship Program.
