Default CF med tech

Hey there, just wondering if anyone can shine some light on Med Tech in the CF. I just completed my pcp through JIBC and I am a supp reservist so I have a direct route in. My application has been pushed and i am just Wondering if someone has some pros and cons of pursuing this trade. Thanks in advance.

If you're not deployed, You will become an expert at taking blood pressures and assessing patients in a clinic for UTI's and such. That's gonna get pretty old, pretty quick. If you deploy somewhere interesting, you will probably see a tonne of trauma but will be pretty light on the medical which is a street medics bread and butter. Having said that, if you're a young guy, there's something to be said about putting in your 20 years and coming out with a pension at a young age. I'm partial to street medicine as it's the path I took. You can't buy the kind of experience you'll get from working in a big town.
