I am currently a freshman in college and looking at becoming a PJ/CRO after I graduate but not sure which is the best way to go. For me the main reason I want to join is to be hands on with the medicine and saving lives. I thought I was set on being a PJ but my family believes that it is better for me to take the CRO path. I will already have a college degree when I join but I not sure if I should go in as an officer and do the CRO path or if I should enlist and take the Pj path. looking for any help and information please

Both options are available (presuming you obtain the baccalaureate), but both options have success uncertainties. Ultimately it's your decision choice to make as failure in one choice will have consequences of you second guessing the other choice might have yielded more success in reaching the goal.

Enlisting is a path that brings with it more hands on with the medicine. But also consider both PJ and CRO are ground battlefield combatant occupations which means you are offensively using deadly force to accomplish the combat rescue or the special operations mission.

Ok Thanks. Also if I chose to take the CRO path is there the opportunity to get the same medical training as a PJ?

Probably not. The duty responsibilities and career development requirements differ too much.

Can you become a CRO after already being a PJ? Theoretically after obtaining a bachelor's degree while already being a PJ, what are the career options after your educational advancement?

As it is possible it is more a question of probability and my crystal ball isn't that forthcoming for any specific individual in telling the individual's future.
