Reserve medical units normally meet one weekend each month. This weekend is divided into four 4-hour periods and is designated as a Unit Training Assembly, or UTA. Additionally, each unit performs a 15-day period of active duty (also called an annual tour). Healthcare professionals join as commissioned officers. You'll enjoy the challenges and rewards of senior leadership.
