Questions regarding the Royal Navy Medical Officer

Hey there,

I'm 16 years old and recently I've been checking for potential career pathways and the prospect of being a Royal Navy Medical Officer has got me interested. However, I have a few questions one of them being the following:

After finishing your Officer training at Britannia Royal Naval College and the other training prior to that will I be 'commissioned' (unsure what the term is, for you to be selected to join the crew of a naval ship) onto an RN ship or would I continue working at an NHS Hospital.

In the event I'm stationed at an RN ship, what class (T-45, Queen Elizabeth Class Aircraft Carriers?) am I most likely to be working on?

The last question, how are Muslims (as I'm a Muslim) tended to be treated in the Royal Navy?

Cheers
 
In order - your effective commissioning will be when you pass out from Dartmouth. It means you are officially an Officer, and not just an Officer Cadet. It can be complicated for MOs, as quite a few are Cadets.

You will do F1/2 before starting your General Duties Medical Officer time. If you join before you start F1, the RN will expect you to do Foundation training in a Deanery allied to the military. Equally, your rotations will have less choice to them. IIRC you have to do Emergency Medicine, GP and Surgery.

As a GDMO you could be assigned to any of the RN's units, including Submarines or RM Units. The larger ships (Carriers, LPD) have a full time GP embarked.

We've enough muslims in Service to mean the system is well-enough set up. I imagine it isn't perfect, but I've no first hand experience.
