I have been trying to find a slot in the US army Reserve Amedd direct commission unit In NY, NJ, CT , PA but have had no luck. I have been attempting to find slots for HEALTH SERVICES ADMINISTRATION (70B) as I think I would best fit there. I have a Bachelors in police studies, A master's degree in Urban affairs, and a master's degree in public administration. I have no prior military experience but did work two years in law enforcement. I am also interested in the MOS listed below.

HEALTH SERVICES COMPTROLLER (70C)
HEALTH SERVICES SYSTEM MANAGEMENT (70D)
PATIENT ADMINISTRATION (70E)
HEALTH SERVICES HUMAN RESOURCES (70F)
HEALTH SERVICES PLANS, OPERATIONS, INTELLIGENCE, SECURITY, AND TRAINING (70H)
HEALTH SERVICES MATERIEL (70K)

What are my chances of finding a slot and when do new slots become available?

70B slots are not easy to come by as anyone with a college degree who is current enlisted can apply for 70B in AMEDD and many soldiers want to come to AMEDD. You need to speak with an AMEDD recruiter in your state to find out more specifics. It’s almost the beginning of the next fiscal year in October so they might have some slots open up.

I checked with my former AMEDD recruiter recently and was told that for COMPO 2 and 3, the only way to get a direct commission as a 70B is to go through USMA, ROTC, or OCS. Due to shift to DHA and 70B currently at or slightly over strength, AMEDD is no longer accepting direct commissions for 70B. Also, 70A/70C/...70K are all AOC that are options for a 70B after meeting certain PME requirements.

I would definitely look into PA Guard. We have multiple medical aviation units and are desperately looking for medical staff. Also you’ll get a lot of education benefits.

Jay Rub call the nearest guard recruiter and tell them your situation. They should give you the officer position for the state that will tel you what is and is not available.
