The practice of pure medicine
Between the civilian sector and the Navy, there’s so much about medical practice that’s essentially the same. But there are also important differences. Like being able to get away from the business side of medicine, away from the associated distractions, and right to the practice of pure medicine.
As a Navy Physician and Medical Officer, you can practice patient-focused medicine in the highly progressive global network of Navy Health Care. Provide world-class care for servicemembers and their families. Plus have the chance to take part in humanitarian missions worldwide.
And, as if all that wasn’t reward enough, right now you could potentially earn a sign-on bonus ranging from $220,000 to $400,000* depending on your specialty.

Being able to take care of basically heroes in the military. In the civilian world, I’d never be exposed to this or meet these people. I would never have the opportunity to take care of them.
