Be the doctor you want to be

Enhance your career
We’re only as good as our Airmen, so it’s important to provide our doctors with the tools they need to foster their careers and continue growing as leaders in their fields.
As a doctor in the Air Force, your job will still be to treat your patients and to provide them with the best care possible, but your experience will be uniquely different from having a practice in the civilian world. You’ll not only be a medical doctor, but also an Air Force Officer, and you’ll receive advantages that allow you to advance your career as far as you’d like it to go.Learn more
