The U.S. Army offers one of the most generous and comprehensive scholarships available in health care today. It’s called the F. Edward Hébert Armed Forces Health Professions Scholarship Program (HPSP).
If you want to become a physician, dentist, veterinarian, optometrist, clinical or counseling psychologist, Family Nurse Practitioner, Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner or Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist and qualify, you could earn a full-tuition scholarship, plus a monthly stipend of $2,178.
If you are planning a career in health care or are currently enrolled in a graduate health care program, it pays to look into the Army’s HPSP — now more than ever before. It provides benefits while you’re in school and benefits after you graduate. According to the American Medical Association, the average cost of four years of medical school has risen to more than $250,000. Add to that your living expense, the start-up costs of opening your own practice once you become a physician, plus the rising cost of malpractice insurance and you can see why the Army HPSP is a wise choice.
