What opportunities does the army offer for Physician Assistant schooling? I am currently a biology student and cadet about to graduate.
I’ve heard murmurs of a Captain’s career course later on, where you repay the army with additional years of service. Are there any other opportunities you know about (maybe something I could do a bit sooner)?

Many schools. There are different types of schools. You have your career development like BOLC, CCC (Captain's Career Course), ILE etc. You have the Hooah, general army schools like Arborne, Air Assault, Ranger etc. And your clinical courses like Combat Casualty Care Course (C4), Tactical Combat Medical Care (TCMC), Global Medicine Course, Medical Management of CBRNE patients, and many more. There is also an option to do continuing education and obtain certs and DSci. Degrees in EMPA, Gen Surgery, orthopedics, ENT and a few others. Depending on component Active, Guard, or Reserve, your unit's mission and funds, and how squared away you are determined which schools you can go to.

Right, thank you. I am familiar with most of these, I’m specifically looking for avenues to pursue Physician Assistant schooling.
