What does a Medical Service Corps officer do?0Wil2012-11-05 22:36:10
Hi, I'm currently an SMP cadet in ROTC. I was enlisted before and am still drilling at my unit, which is MI. I was originally planning on staying MI in the guard upon commissioning, but I've been thinking about switching to Medical Service Corps. I will have a BA in psych with a minor in linguistics and plan on attending grad school for either clinical psych or cognitive psych. What exactly does an MS Corps officer do? I know I wouldn't be a doctor or clinical psychologist because I won't have my professional degree yet, but what about counseling psychology? What other kinds of jobs are available? I found some jobs, haven't found much in the way of descriptions/responsibilities. Also, how long is OBC at Ft. Sam-Houston? Thanks!

What are my options for the Navy Medical Corps?0K stewart2012-11-03 16:50:30
I'm currently in my first year at Ohio State, where I'm majoring in Psychology and Microbiology, and I'm also enrolled in the Pre-med program. I want to eventually be a physician in the Navy, but I know I won't be able to do that for a few years. I'd like to enlist sooner, but I don't know what else I'd be able to do. I thought about maybe joining as medical support, but I don't know much about the requirements for that. Also, is there any way I could do the NROTC program and still be in one of the health fields?
Raf intelligence officer vs raf police officer vs public protection masters degree?2Leanora2012-10-07 19:45:04
Hey guys , I'm new to this site please MedlinePlus nice :) I am a student of criminology and psychology , about to graduate ( two weeks from now ) . I've offered a good year for combating racism and victimization organizations , and one of my practices is also based volunteering in a Crown Court and I like to think I have a decent understanding of the law . well , I recently trained with G4 and am to be part of the Olympic security team this summer . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus My question here is what would be the next best move ? While the three options of interest to me , I can not really decide whether to continue my career with the RAF ( after some research , the RAF sounds better then the regular army or navy , sorry if I'm stepping on any toes feet ) , or try to push further my cv with a master's degree ( many more people are getting higher grades ) MedlinePlus MedlinePlus On the other hand , if I leave education , and applied to the RAF , which would be a better career choice for someone like me , intelligence officer or a police officer MedlinePlus ? I really do not care manifest hatred that comes with the option of police , and I want a sense that I 'm somehow contributing . However, the idea of being away from home for months at a time is something that is being reduced this appeal . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus please help ! preferably someone with experience in one or more of the above areas ? MedlinePlus MedlinePlus thanks guys
Which career choice would suit me more? Intelligence Officer or Police Officer?0Emeralda2012-11-05 18:17:12
Ok, right now I'm a 15 year old teenager and my business teacher told me that it is time to start thinking about what you want to do in your future. So I came down to two choices: Police Officer and Intelligence Officer (aka: Spy) Here's the pros and cons of Police: Pro - Get to see ur family more - Way higher pay (Possible over 100K) - Get to legally carry firearms (We dont get CCW in Canada) Cons - Dangerous - Extremely strict rules to follow - Report Writing Intelligence Officer: Pros - the lifestyle (the undercover thing) - Rewarding - The feeling of national Pride - Get to protect your country - Non-literate license to kill (foreign missions) Also, not that I want to kill someone, but it would benefit in the case that you really do have no choice but to pull the trigger Cons: - No weapons (CSIS: Canada's CIA) except in dangerous foreign territory - Can be sent anywhere all over the world for months at a time - Lower pay (from 40K to 70K) - Having to leave family for a while. Ok, I think I can be qualified in both fields of work as I currently study psychology, law, computer programming/comm tech at my high school, and most likely I would take Law or Psychology or Forensics in University. Would this game plan work? - Become a Police Officer after graduating University - Continue studying while being a cop - Work a few years, get promoted to Detective - Work Detective for a while and apply for CSIS - IF CSIS accepts my application, then go for their interview. - If I pass, join them and find a cover story as to why I switched jobs. So which one is more right for me? BTW, I am not some adrenaline-pumped teenager who has watched one too many 007 Bond films or CSI: Miami. I want a career that is fast-paced, exciting, (The occasional bore does not matter) and rewarding, but yet at the same time, I don't think I can leave family for long-term (Months is ok, but not years though) Which career field seems more right for me? Thank You in advance

I want to volunteer for the peace corps!?0Alizah2012-10-20 08:27:49
I'm tired and unmotivated to my life . For some time I have been trying to find a purpose and is something I can do to benefit someone if anyone in the world . I've always had that eccentric personality and I am considered a minimalist in its own right . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I've never been the best student and so far I am struggling in school . I guess I was stuck in a bubble for a long time . I have no friends , no job , and suck as a student . But I really want to help the world and I could care less about me all the time I'm doing something good . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus If I can be collected as a Peace Corps volunteer , that's my motivation. I will work hard ! I'm sure I can change my life ... new job , better grades , volunteering in my community , start boxing again ... MedlinePlus MedlinePlus I am currently 20 years old in psychology , and I'm thinking minoring in biology. My plan was to get my degree , and advance in an occupational therapy program . My grades could improve great , sometimes I wish I could start over ... but I'm sure we can find a way to do it . MedlinePlus MedlinePlus Anyone can help me , be part of the Peace Corps is a real wish of mine, and I think I had the need to complete and understand myself more. I'm a very spiritual person and I always try to put others before me. What are my options if I change my life , do not think about getting my degree soon ... maybe in the next 2-3 years MedlinePlus be an adequate psychology degree ?
