Has anyone switched from a direct commissioned AMEDD Reserve Officer (administrative) to AD Air Force Clinician? I want to use my doctorate degree and I need to pay off my loans... Physical Therapy in the Army Reserves is over strength and the SLRP I was told to add once I finished my doctorate in the reserves has "vanished" (My unit career manager/recruiter have no idea what I'm talking about). I signed on with the Reserves in 2018 with no incentives or service obligations. (Unless the unwritten rumor I've heard is true.) Any advice? I'll graduate with 180,000 in SL and if I don't get a public sector job to qualify for Public Student Loan Forgiveness I'll definitely need to switch to AD.

So you do have an 8yr obligation to the Service. But that obligation should be able to be spent in any Service. You'll need to talk to an AF recruiter to see what their process is, but they'll be able to walk you through the conditional release you'll need from AMEDD and the Army for the transfer of commission.
