CHANGING PERCEPTIONS

U.S. Army Health Care Facility Tour

James, medical student: So, my perceptions of the Army have definitely changed. The biggest thing would be taking that umbrella off of the words "Army Military."

Rahim, medical student: This really helps clear up a lot of those misinformed ideas that are out on the Internet, or that the general public may have.

James: The biggest thing for me was getting over that fear of the uniform and the Army lingo and all that stuff. And that it's still real people. They're not drill sergeants here, telling you how to practice medicine or something like that.

Lawrence, family practice resident: It's nice. It makes you comfortable, to actually come down and see what it's like. If I was to go back, I would have done HPSP, I think. Because, then there is no debt.

Alexander, medical student: It sounded like a really good opportunity, so I thought I'd look into it a little more.

James: I really understand more of what the Army is about, specifically what being a doctor in the Army is all about.

Larry (speaking to Army Medical team member): Thanks very much, because this kind of changes my outlook on things.
