I have some questions about becoming a Medical Officer in the Royal Navy. 1. Can one apply to the Navy to be a Medical Officer without first having a degree; and without first being a doctor? What are the training pre-requisites? 2. I found the age requirements information at the main Royal Navy site confusing when it came to the Medical Offcier job. Royal Navy When the information on the Navy job site says the age requirement is 17-54, what does that mean? Can someone say aged 38 apply? Does it imply that, being 17, one does not need to show they are actually studying a medical degree? Thank you for your help!
