SFB - I must confess that I am unaware of that program. I am guessing it is the physicians assistant program? The curriculum says that it is based on the QL3s and 5s of the med tech. Do you need to first serve as a med tech in order to enlist in the program?
PMedMoe - by going officer, you mean in general right (i.e. artillery, etc)? I did not know there was an officer option for the med techs (aside from military doctors).
*edit: Let me ask you guys a very personal question (if a new topic is needed for such a question, let me know). According to the forces pay scale, a corporal makes 50,000. Can you as a single person live comfortably on that salary? By comfortable I don't mean a lavish life, but rather a self sufficient one where you have a small place of your own (not a bunker), and you are not strapped to pay your monthly expenses - in other words not having to succomb to a spartan lifestyle.
I ask only because you know firsthand the military lifestyle. This weighs heavily on the decision because where i went to school, in Waterloo (where i got my Bsc in Organic Chemistry), I would not be able to live off such a salary cause of the cost of living.
