Applying for Medical Cadetship for both RN and Army?

All,

As described in another thread, I am strongly considering applying for a military cadetship / bursary scheme as a medical officer while in medical school. I am torn between the Army and RN. Do candidates apply for both? Would each service know or ask about this, and would it be looked down upon?

Also, I am considering joining a local TA Medical unit. Would this be frowned upon during a Navy selection process?

Many thanks

I doubt it. You're an in demand applicant - use and abuse both sides until you are very sure about what steps you want to take.

It's not like we're going to turn you down just because you've been in the AR.

As mentioned elsewhere, the offer for med students is broadly similar for RN, Army or RAF.

My tip? Call the RN Medical specialist recruiters to see if you can get yourself on an acquaint visit. (02392 727096).

Thanks Ninja. I have spoken to them. The visit comes after you begin the application process, hence my question.

One thing to bear in mind is that there's no obligation to join the service after completing an application or indeed after successfully completing selection. The reason for the requirement is to confirm realistic intent as opposed to an imagined whim.
