They can go on to attend doctorate awarding fellowships in Orthopedic Surgery, General Surgery, Emergency Medicine, and ENT. They are leading Aerospace research teams, caring for our aviators, building international health care systems and relationships and providing direct support for our Special Operations teams across the globe.
