What is the current OCS requirements for Army/Navy and would I qualify? I am interested in going to the Medical Service Corps route but will take any openings I qualify for. I was in the Navy as a Hospital Corpsman 2nd Class (E-5) and got out back in 2015. I'm on my last year of my Bachelor's degree and have a 3.2 GPA on Health Services Management. I will be 28 years old by the time I graduate.

And when I was USAF OTS, there were a lot of prior enlistees there from multiple svcs, one guy had Navy enlisted dolphins, so it's quite common, from what I'd seen, honest....ISPHS also jas generally higher age limits, from what I've read, plus, you can ask to be assigned to a regular SVC sometimes as USPHS, Army uses USPHS a good deal for psych care, iphlth info I dont kmow, though you could ask, you could also ask to ne assigned to USCG, USPHS aside from PAs, ISCG jas their own, USPHS is routinely assigned to USCG, just another thought....
I'll send you some other stuff as soon as I can as well, there are fellowships at the Natl Library of Med (NLM) of NIH in med/health IT that you might seriously want to try for, also, a !asters and PhD in IT could get you to to the top of that food chain a whole lot quicker, possibly honest, OK? I'd ne most eager to know your thoughts....
