    Passport query.

    Dear Dr. Somraj,

    Technically speaking a passport is required whenever you enter a foreign country by any mode of travel and is checked at the port of entry and exit. However as a serving personnel in the Indian armed forces which is a central government service, you will be issued an official passport by the Indian government whenever you are travelling on official business to other countries. This is usually a red-coloured passport different from the normal blue-coloured passport that civilians are issued with.

    Having said that, while in the Navy, you may get ample chance to visit foreign countries if your ship is sent out on goodwill tours or deployment to other countries. While on such a visit, you will not require a passport of any sort as technically you are travelling as part of a routine mission. However, your moving ashore in the country of visit will be co-ordinated by the local authorities in tandem with your ship's administrative officers. You cannot move about on your own without express permission from both these authorities.

    My advice is please start processing a normal civilain passpor before you join the services itself as you may find it useful at some point of time later in life. Processing a normal passport while in service is a little difficult and may take time.

    Regards,

    Devadi

    Guest Guest

    I hope you have read the first post in this thread. to be in the army you need to be of a particular bent of mind. Everybody doesn't like it.
    The life is comfortable and financially you are very independant and secure. professionally its up to you if you keep in touch and are studying then its fine.
    Initially you'll be commissioned in a hospital which is near your place(thats what usually happens), after that you'll go for your Medical Officers Basic Course in Lucknow, and then you'll be posted in a field area. If you plan to take PC and do your PG then Please please study when you are in field because thats when you'll get lots of time .

    About the interview and medical fitness. If you are over weight then start working to reduce as thats a major issue. The interview , they ask stuff from surgery and medicine also so ask some gk stuff ( at least thats how mine went).
    But I really must emphasise that the army life is not meant for everyone. Its totally up to you to enjoy the life as its got a lot to offer, new places, adventure sports ( if you are interested)and generally a comfortable life. But all these go with the fact that you might be asked to move from anywhere to anywhere at a short notice. After getting married( if to an army officer) then postings together may not always be possible.
    There a lot of social commitments and you are not just a doctor. you are a doctor and an officer , you may be asked to perform administrative duties, may not always get leave.
    It requires a lot of adjusting and you come to know only after you join .
    all the best , put a lot of thought and then make your decision.

    Army Medical Corps

    Hi,
    There are a number of people who dismiss the army as being meant for average or below average doctors....probably these guys went from Ganganagar to Uri and then to Bagdogra and have never seen the other side. I too have served at J & K, at remote areas at a height of 16,000 feet and sweated it out in a tent with no fan in the desert at the height of summer. But I have also seen the up end of it. Doctors can be good or bad...in the army or outside. Last week at R & R hospital ( I'm doing my PG in anaesthesia there) there was a neonate with transposition of the great arteries who underwent an arterial switch operation at the OT i was working in...very easy, all you have to do is transect the aorta and the pulmonary arteries, suture the old aortic root to the pulmonary atery, suture the aorta to the old pulmonary artery root, cut out the coronary ostia and reattach them to the new aorta, repair the ASDand ligate the PDA. Do you think the surgeon who did this was average or below average? or the anaesthesiologist who took a neonate on cardiopulmonary bypass? and the surgeons who succesfully carried out liver transplants?
    What I'm trying to say is that while there are bad doctors, there are also brilliant ones in the army, so one shouldn't generalize. The army is not great in many ways but it is great in many ways too.
    I'm ex - army by the way

    ex serviceman pg

    Im put on 3yrs of service as ssc,am no more interested for pc and planning to leave after 5yrs of ssc,but i want to do pg in ex serviceman seat in any clinical subject.it possible in afmc or r&r?
  13. Guest

    Guest Guest

    PG ex ssc

    hi,
    you can do PG in either of the four hospitals
    R & R
    Afmc
    INHS Ashwini
    Air Force hospital Bangalore
    But the picture is rather dismal as ex ssc are priority 4 . I took up R & R exam last year and got the 12 rank. R & R has around 31 seats varies a bit form year to year. This time round it so happened that there were a lot of priority 3 candidates and even though none of the subjects they had chosen at the time of applying were available they were still accommodated with subjects available leaving almost nothing for ex ssc. there were only 11 seats left so missed it by 1 rank. My husband got through last to last year and is now doing his PG in R & R.
    The prospects of ex ssc PG were good a couple of years ago. You'd be better of trying for all india or something . you still have 2 years to go . You must make the best use of it and study really well.
    all the best.

    Ex SSC PG is dicey!

    Hi all,

    I fully agree with Nruthya.....Ex SSC PG has become very dicey of late and nothing is predictable. I had taken the exam in 2006 at CHAF Bangalore and got the 10th rank. Three seats got cancelled that year and the last seat got over at the 9th rank, missed by one rank!

    Every year the seat matrix and status keeps changing and nobody can predict how many seats would be vacant or would go to the ExSSC as the priority 2 and 3 candidates keep changing every time.

    My personal advice would be to try for your state entrances or the All india rather than having all hopes on the Ex SSC PG alone.

    but now he is not sure about the quota for ex servicemen in UPSC and wants to leave SSC..

    he has just joined one month back ..

    Probation period

    Dear Rahul,

    The first year of SSC in the AMC is a probationary period andas such if one is disinclined to continue, then the best time to quit is within the first year. Please ask your friend to talk to his superior and put in a written request for leaving the services citing inability to adjust to servicce way of life. It will not be easy and it may take almost a year for the DGAFMS office to process his request.

    On the other hand, if he has joined AMC with the idea of just using ExSSC reservation, it would have been better if he had checked the details before jumping in.

    Best regards,

    Devadi

    Career decisions should be taken wisely

    Dear Dr. Fouz,

    Happy to see such enthusiasm to join the armed forces! However, I hope that you are not basing your decisions on superficial knowledge of the forces alone. Do you have any relatives or close friends in the armed forces whom you can trust to give an unbiased opinion?

    Life in the services for a lady medical officer is a mixture of the good and the bad. I can surely comment on the life in the Naval branch. About life in the army, I would advise you to seek the counsel of major prasun who can give a better perspective.

    I have personally seen lady medical officers in the Navy having the best of everything. Being a woman, they do not have to serve onboard warships (the sea tenure is akin to field postings for the naval personnel), although I must say that the few women who have served onboard when it was permitted by the DGAFMS were unique in their own way. In fact some of them have won appreciation for proving their mettle on board too! However, in view of certain issues, women are currently not posted board. `

    Most of the postings will be in Naval hospitals in major cities or independent units in coastal cities. The service way of life opens the door for a variety of experiences and a great social life. If you are good in academics and clinical practice you can appear for the in-service PG entrance and get into Obs/Gyn. However, you are eligible for giving the entrance only if you are selected for a permanent commission in the AFMS. For more information on this, please check my previous posts as well as those of major prasun.

    The down side is that you will get transferred every 3 years to a new place. If you get married to a service personnel then the DGAFMS office will try to post both of you together at the same place as far as possible.

    I wish you all the best for a successful career ahead. The call for this year's SSC in AFMS can be checked at the following web site - http://www.indianarmy.gov.in/dgafms/index.htm. The call for and last date of application for the year 2008 is already over in May 2008.

    Best wishes,

    Devadi

    thanks a lot sir.

    hello sir.
    thanks a lot sir. although i didn't ve any direct contact with an army personnel except my commanding officers in NCC, i was just toying wit d idea until i met my college senior lady who's come back fresh from SSC. right now she's working wit me as a junior resident in cardiology. the inputs which i ve got from her are pretty positive. i ve already read all ur posts and found them very encouraging. i don't mind d downside of joining d forces. kuch paane ke liye, kuch khona padta hai. :)
    oh, looks like i ve missed d train this time. anyways, not a problem. i'll prepare for it next time. by d time i wud ve given my all india nd state cet. and i would be able to plan my future course accordingly. until then wish me good luck for my studies. :!:

    dear dr devadi

    i must agree that your analytical skills are excellent.you have perfectly and equally elaborated both sides of the coin. i can say that because my father is a naval officer and i have seen life in navy at both sailor and officer level and understand the privileges as well as the shortcomings of a career in defence. in short its a career for the not so GREEDY guys.i was hoping that you could shed some more light on the 6th pay commission recommendations. also, as you must know that drs had accelerated promotions than regular officers which is not so nowadays is their anything that is being done to give us our due seniority and when can we expect to see some results.also, it shall be very kind of you to provide some more details in the pg and the dnb department.please also do mention what you are doing right now so as to provide some options to drs if they leave after 5 years.i know its asking a lot but at the same time i am sure you will show the same magnanimosity as you have shown in all your posts.

    hoping for a swift reply
    yours sincerely

    sir,i am very interested in joining the army medical corps.currently i am pursuing my mbbs in a reputed govt. college.however i suffer from mild red-green colour blindness.will this disqualify me?
  40. Guest

    Guest Guest

    Your query

    Dear Guest,

    As per the medical fitness standards prescribed for the armed forces, every barnch and service has certain specific medical fitness requirements. Having colour-blindness is a disqualification for most branches in the Indian armed forces, including the army medical corps.

    Hope this helps.

  43. Guest

    Guest Guest

    Hello all

    Dear Friends,

    Sorry I have been away from this forum for some time now as I was busy with work.

    Dr. Sweta, to answer your query, once you finish your 5 years of SSC, you do not become eligible for giving the All India PG exam. Anyone who has done their MBBS from Andhra Pradesh or J&K is ineligible for All India PG exam throughout their life, except if they have done a Diploma in some other state and are trying for an MD/MS.

    Hope that answers your query. To all others who have been frequenting thsi forum with questions, please excuse the delay in my replying. I have been away with work and have not had time to check the posts regulary. Will answer questions in the coming days.

    Regards,

    I am a post graduate student in Tropical Medicine(MD- final year) in School of Tropical Medicine , Kolkata. It is MCI recognised and I have taken it through AIPG entrance test.
    Now I want to join in Indian army as a medical officer. I want to know that what is the difference between central police parailitary force( BSF, ITBP, CRPF, SSB) as just now there is an advertisement for medical officer in paramilitary force. Is it really a frustrating line in paramilitary force?
    Is there anyone from paramilitary force can help me? Which one is better in paramilitary force between CRPF, BSF, ITBP, SSB , Assam rifle and why?
    Another question is that when there will be another recruitment occure SSC in Indian Army?
    Is it very difficult to get PC in Indian army?
    Please help me.
