A free ride to medical school is the holy grail of medical school admissions, and you may have heard that “military medical schools” will pay for you to become a doctor. Military medical schools is another name for The Health Professions Scholarship Program (HPSP), and it is the most famous way to go to medical school for free. You simply commit to the military one year of your life for every year of medical school training and you get to go to medical school for free.
This is what you probably already know about the HPSP program. But what you don’t about HPSP is that it’s offered for both MD programs and for DO programs. The Army, Navy, and Air Force participate in the HPSP, so you don’t have to be limited to only one branch of the Armed Forces.
If you are interested in going into osteopathic medicine, and you’re worried about the money, then the HPSP program might be perfect for you.
One trick — Most Health Recruiters won’t offer you a contract until or unless you have been accepted. But! I can assure you that EVERY Health Recruiter has monthly, quarterly and annual goals that he MUST reach (this is the military, after all).
So if you think you have a strong chance of getting in, and you’re interested in the HPSP option, then DEFINITELY go to an HPSP Recruiter and sell yourself.
The recruiter can (sometimes) offer you a contract CONTINGENT on you getting accepted. If you’re in, then the military will pay for it. If you don’t get in, no harm, no foul.
