Review for US Naval Sea Cadet Corps, Arlington, VA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

From 2001-2006 I spent my summers traveling around America attending two-week-trainings as a US Naval Sea Cadet. Two of these trainings were at Naval Medical Center San Diego and what is now Walter Reed National Military Medical Center. I have so many wonderful stories from these trainings (such as getting locked out of the back operating room area, and being taught by a junior sailor how to place IVs). Although Sea Cadets was not my inspiration to go into medicine, these experiences greatly influenced my decision to become a Navy doctor. The program as a whole taught me the importance of personal responsibility and qualities of an effective leader. I owe a great deal of my success to this organization. LT K. L. Cortez, MD
