I was pleasantly surprised when I joined the Army, how many women there are in senior-level roles. That just goes to show that if you're a great physician and a strong leader, they will promote you. That, to me, is very inspiring.
I'm Major Nouansy Wilton at Brooke Army Medical Center. I'm a board-certified Internal Medicine doctor.
I started out in medical school, I went to an Army resident training program. I was a three-year HPSP scholarship beneficiary. The Army actually pays for the tuition. In a private school, that can be $40,000 a year. You get a monthly stipend and they also pay for your books and any supplies you need.
I really enjoy being an Army doctor, and I think it's very different from being a civilian doctor. I refer my patients to civilian neurologists and they'll say to me, "Doctor Wilton, I sat in the waiting room. I saw the nurse. I saw another nurse. And then, finally, after half an hour, I saw a doctor who spent five minutes with me." Whereas, I see my patients, I would say, an average of 45 minutes. And that helps me make decisions about their healthcare. On a daily basis, I get such good, positive feedback from my patients.
I'm really lucky in that I am able to have a family and still be a doctor. I have two daughters, I'm married. I love that I can spend a lot of time with them. When I'm not on ward duties, I'm off on the weekends and San Antonio has so many places to explore. We've been to Sea World. We have memberships at the Botanical Gardens and it's such a great place.
I remember talking to the Dean of Students and he said, "I feel strongly that everyone should do some activity to give back to the United States." And so I chose to join the military for that.
