I'm enlisted in the US Army as 68w I know you can get stationed anywhere, but my question is what are the odds of what I actually do?I know there is hospital, clinic, line medic ect But I was curious if anyone could quantify what exactly is the most likely thing I'll be doing ?

Look bro, I'm not gonna bs you. I love being a medic and there is always going to be people like that. Most of the time its too trigger a MedBoard so they can medically retire without finishing their contract.

My current life here on Gordon. Sick call for whiny AIT students who don’t want to be in CoC formation so they fake diarrhea and storm out the clinic when you deny their request for quarters and give em light duty. Lol

I was assigned to a field artillery unit at my first duty station, then went onto hospitals for my second and third duty station and now I’m assigned to a support battalion (a Charlie Medical company)...as a medic (along with pretty much every MOS in the Army) you can go pretty much anywhere...just depends where the Army needs you.

Male Medics are typically assigned to MTOE units their first assignment. This generally means combat units but it’s not set in stone. I’ve met (and trained) plenty whose first units were also in the MEDDAC (clinics/hospitals). Keep your options open, LEARN, and follow the guidance you're given, you’ll be okay.

Thank you. Most straight forward answer so far. My aim, altho lofty, is to be in the top of my class at ft Sam Houston. I am a good listener and learner. Thank you for your encouragement.
