What exactly do you have to do during the HPSP?1Mari2016-07-13 23:30:22
I'm sorry if this question sounds stupid, I don't know much information about the HPSP (health professions scholarship program) for the military. I'm only 17 but trying to figure out what exactly I want to do with my future. I plan on getting my PhD in Clinical Psychology and if I enroll in the HPSP after college, my understanding is that after I have completed my service, medical school will be paid for. Now what I want to know is what exactly is a psychologist expected to do whilst in the program? Am I counseling soldiers? Or is the program not specific to one major?[View Answers]

Military Career Options: PhD student interested in becoming an Officer (previously USAF enlisted)?0Chubby2012-11-06 00:21:32
I have been considering joining the military(/Air Force) again after my graduate work is finished. I am in a PhD program for Industrial-Organizational (I-O) Psychology and I will soon defend my Master's Degree. Briefly, I-O psychologists expertise include: Selection, retention, attitude assessment, and other workplace issues (such as, training, job analysis, stress, leadership, personality, etc). In other words, issues that are becoming increasingly important to the military. I have been trying to find information on whether this advanced degree would 'fast-track' my career (such as, starting higher than O-1). I am particularly interested in what implications my degree would have for career advancement. I know that certain advanced degrees can lead to a Direct Commission, but not sure if mine is applicable. In addition, my understanding is that in order to advance very far as a USAF officer, you (almost) need to have been in the Academy and/or pilot (I'm 31 and too old now). Finally, my last year was in S. Korea on a remote tour. If I would have stayed in, I would have been able to have some choice for my home-base. Could this still be a possibility?[View Answers]
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![View Answers]

Is the USAF specific about Psychology? I want to major and minor in two different areas of the subject.?0Natacha2012-11-05 18:56:25
Okay, now I know that Psychologists aren't deployed all the time, and I know I was told this before, but I was a little confused about that because someone else posted an answer yesterday saying that they were a former USAF Psychologist and that that was the way it worked. I was reiterating what they said, but now that I know that that obviously is not the case, I'm wondering if this is true as well: This person also said that it was tacky to say that I wanted to go into the USAF as a clinical psychologist (I don't know, is it tacky?) and that the Air Force wasn't specific when it came to labeling their shrinks. I want to major in Clinical Psychology and minor in Psychology of Attraction. Does that even matter? Or all Psychologists, regardless of their majors and minors classified the same? Thanks in advance...[View Answers]
Is it true that within 6 months Israel will strike important nuclear hot spots in Iran, and Russia will back?0muddy2012-11-05 18:02:03
Iran? And the United States will back Israel? And this will lead to WW3? I was told this by a professor in New Testament philosophy class. He has a PHD in religion, and a PHD in psychology. But he was claiming political science experts were saying this was true. Now don't call me a moron, or any names. I am just wondering if there is any truth to this. Thanks for any information.[View Answers]
Which is better for me, Navy or Air Force?0saeed2012-11-05 09:09:51
I am getting ready to graduate from Colorado State University in December, and plan on 4 years of military service so that I can take advantage of the GI Bill to pay for grad school. I am deciding at this point between the Navy and the Air Force. Please help me decide based on my priorities, which are listed below 1. Safety. I have no interest in putting my life on the line. For this reason, I want to stay as clear as I can from the dangers of war. 2. Travel. The more of the world I can see while I am in, the better. 3. Location of base. I would prefer to be based somewhere coastal, or, if not, in a medium-large city 4. Living conditions 5. Environment of respect 6. Application of my psych degree. I know this may be unrealistic, but I will be very happy if I can use my psychology background in ANY branch of the military. Thanks so much for your help.[View Answers]

What to wear / bring to Army Recruiter Office?0Nicole-Marie2012-11-04 20:47:34
I graduated college with a B.A. in Psychology (GPA 3.55) and want to apply to Officer Candidate School for the United States Army. Worse comes to worst, if I don't get in I can still enlist and going in at a higher rank. So on Friday I made an appointment to go see a Staff Sergeant. Now I personally feel that if I were to inquire about a position of leadership in the armed forces, I should present myself in a professional manner. This means that I won't be wearing t shirts and flip flops to my appointment. I was thinking of something more business casual i.e. a nice pair of slacks and a conservative dress shirt, no tie. Furthermore, I was going to create a portfolio of my goals, educational information, positions desired for the armed forces, as well as a typed set of questions that I could ask the recruiter for which I could not find any info on. Do you think that presenting myself in a such a manner is a good idea for an officer position? If I am not accepted to OCS, do you think my presentation would be a good idea if I were to desire certain specialized fields in the Army, i.e. paralegal specialist or mental health specialist? P.S. I know that my ASVAB scores matter, however I have scored a 180 my first time on the test and plan to include the score in my packet.[View Answers]

ROTC and med school questions?0Ruquaya2012-11-04 01:45:29
I am starting college in a few weeks. I am in AFROTC and majoring in Psychology. I want to be a Psychiatrist. I would really like to be a criminal profiler for the FBI but I believe there is an age limit and I will be too old by the time I will be a psychiatrist. I want to work for law enforcement and the government as well. So in order to become a Psychiatrist... I will have four years for my degree, then go into the Air Force and be an officer. I am aiming to be in OSI but that is a slim chance, so I'll look into intelligence. How many years would this be? After the Air Force, would they help me pay for med school?[View Answers]
I know someone out there has had and RE-4 code changed.?0Janina2012-11-04 01:16:18
I was discharged in 2004 with an entry level seperation and an RE-4 code. BAsically it said it was for a pre-existing depressive disorder. Long story short. It was found out that I had been to a counselor (required to be accepted into psychology program in college), so I had to go to the Recruit Evaluation Unit. I guess since I answered honestly-- I missed my family and no I was not sleeping in boot camp like I did at home (a given I thought) they determined I was depressed. I would really like to get back in. I have a letter from the counselor I saw and he states specifically that I was not depressed nor did I fit any of the criteria for having a depressive disorder.[View Answers]

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?[View Answers]
Military/recruiting question for those in-the-know about doctoral candidates going into the military?0Christi2012-11-03 13:32:18
I'm interested in doing my psychology internship with the Army. However, due to some procedural changes with the dissertation process at my school I will be unable to apply this fall as planned. That means I need to spend another year waiting with no classes to take (but still having to pay $1000 a semester to remain an "active" student) and will not be able to graduate for 2.5 years from now with 1.5 years from now being when I would actually DO the internship part. I'm wondering, can I join the Army now as an enlisted soldier and then, when internship time comes up, change over to the internship program as a commissioned officer? I get it would mean I would have to go to bootcamp going this route (as opposed to skipping it and just becoming a Captain), but I don't mind the 8 weeks of hell. So that's not an issue. I'm more concerned with the ability to go from being an active enlisted soldier into the psychology internship program. I know I could call a recruiter, but that's at least 4 days away for me since I can't call from work until my day off on Wednesday.[View Answers]
