I'm Capt. Susan Mosier. And I'm Capt. Andrew Mosier. We're married and both physicians in the U.S. Army Medical Corps. We're recipients of the Army's HPSP scholarship, a scholarship that has paid for our entire medical tuition.
The HPSP scholarship also provided us with a monthly stipend and money for books and medical supplies. It allowed us to focus our attention on our medical studies.
As a couple, the Army has been great about keeping us together. We are currently stationed at Madigan Army Medical Center in Fort Lewis, Wash.
In the Army, it's easier to obtain a medical residency in any one of a wide variety of medical specialties, in medical centers around our country.
One advantage to practicing medicine in the military is that we can prescribe treatment without worrying about our patients' ability to pay.
As a child, I always loved technology. Being a radiology resident in the Army has allowed me to fulfill my dream by working with some of the most advanced imaging equipment.
I went into the medical profession to serve those in need, particularly pediatric patients, who I feel are the most vulnerable members of our society.
We're, we're very fortunate uh to be here at Madigan Army Medical Center and on Fort Lewis. We can work out at any one of four or five different gyms. Run around the parade field, which has a backdrop of Mt. Rainier. Go golfing at Fort Lewis Golf Course or go hiking in any of the various mountains within the area.
The HPSP program um that both myself and my husband are a part of has been an amazing, um asset for us. And when you put the two of us together, that's about a half a million dollars that we would have had to pay back.
I would encourage anyone considering the Army HPSP scholarship to consider it as joining part of a family.
