Date:2/1/2008

Incentive Supplements Army Scholarship Program to Help Students Achieve

Medical and Dental Education

FORT KNOX, Ky., Feb. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- The United States Army Medical Department has created a new $20,000 Critical Skills Accession Bonus (CSAB) incentive for medical and dental students who are accepted into the Army's F. Edward Hebert Armed Forces Health Professions Scholarship Program (HPSP).

The Health Professions Scholarship Program provides students with the full cost of tuition, school related fees and books and a stipend of more than $1,900 per month, effective July 1, 2008, to continue their education toward becoming medical or dental professionals.

The CSAB is a one-time $20,000 sign-on bonus (less tax) for students who meet the requirements of and are accepted into the HPSP program after Jan. 4, 2008. Acceptance of the bonus includes a four-year active duty and four-year Reserve service obligation, which can be fulfilled concurrent with service obligations related to HPSP upon completion of residency programs and becoming licensed to practice.

Graduates of HPSP can finish school debt-free and become a member of one of the most comprehensive and dynamic health care organizations in the world, the Army Health Care Team. In addition, residents and graduates gain unparalleled practical experience that puts them years ahead professionally of their civilian counterparts.

"Army Health Care through its scholarship program provides students with a first rate medical and dental education, advanced training and experience as a member of the best health care team in the world," said Col. Rafael Montagno, commander U.S. Army Medical Recruiting Brigade. This accession bonus will further help attract top talent to Army medicine and dentistry, and support students in achieving their educational goals.

The Army's scholarship program provides benefits during school and after graduation for those planning a career in health care or who are currently enrolled in a graduate medical or dental program. In addition to a full tuition scholarship to the medical or dental school of choice, the program pays for required books, non-expendable equipment, other academic fees and a monthly stipend that is adjusted annually for cost-of-living increases. Upon graduation and entry onto active duty, Medical and Dental Corps officers receive increases in salary and new opportunities for a broad range of residencies, fellowships and special pay incentives.

Army Health Care Professionals work with the latest high-tech equipment, technology and life-saving trauma equipment. In addition, physicians are free to concentrate on caring for patients and developing innovative new techniques and procedures rather than administrative business tasks such as processing insurance claims or building a client base.

-- No-cost or low-cost medical and dental care for you and your family

-- A comfortable home on-post or a generous housing allowance if you live
