I am just wondering if anyone has become a doctor after pararescue and if it helps to get into med school?

It would be the hardest way into medical school I have ever heard of.

A few PJs have become docters, and at least one Chiropracter I know of...but it won't really help you get in to med school and as doc4 said, not a reason to get into Pararescue. A few Physicians Assistants also...which would probably help with med school.

Med school is a long long road. Better get started early.

I personally know (served with) 2 PJ's and 1 CCT who went to med school and became doctor's after their respective tours.
