Step 1: Obtain a Bachelor's Degree
The first step to become a military doctor is to earn a bachelor's degree, which is necessary to enter medical school.
Step 2: Earn a Medical DegreeCivilians entering the military as medical officers generally need a degree from an approved medical school. While students can attend a military medical school, it isn't necessary to have a degree from a military-affiliated school to join the military. Students might qualify for military financial aid to support them during medical school with an agreement that they join the military as a commissioned officer after graduation.
Step 3: Meet Military Requirements and Join the MilitaryExact admission prerequisites will vary between different branches of the military; however, all applicants need to meet health, character and age requirements. In addition, a security clearance might be required.

Thank you for answering Treasa! Samyukta S.

I am not a doctor. However, I have a friend who is a Major and is with Army working as a doctor.

To become an Army doctor, you need to have a Bachelors Degree in Medicine. Once you have a degree in medicine, follow up on the army notifications for the interview. Army does sponsor their employees to study further :)

All the best

Dear Samyukta,
Although I have answered this question previously as well. Since it is focused to joining medical services of the armed forces in India, I am making another attempt to answer this question.
Steps to be followed:
1. Be a medical science graduate either through AFMC, Pune or any other medical college which is now through NEET in India. Should you do the same from a foreign university or college, you have to clear the examination of the MCI(medical Council of India).
2. After obtaining the degree, you can appear for interview for selection into the Indian Army/Navy/Air Force and don the uniform with pride.
All the Best!
