I went to medical school at Midwestern University’s Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine thanks to the Army’s generous health professionals scholarship program (HPSP), and I fell in love with the Phoenix area. I owe four years to the Army after I graduate residency, at a location yet to be determined (not by me!).A
