    If you have been chosen as a Medical Cadet. Go to AMC, no second thoughts. You'll get paid during your education, you will have job security, a house by the army and many perks including retirement benefits etc. However, the only downside is that, you won't be able to go abroad for your Post Graduate training except UK. In the long run, you won't be able to make the same kind of big bucks like your peers who will graduate from civilian medical colleges, and who will probably be charging > Rs. 1000 per patient for check up, while you will still be receiving a fixed salary and some other benefits. However, in some CMH like Quetta, Rawalpindi and Lahore, you will be allowed to check private/civilian patients but, you still won't be making anywhere close to your peers and, Army will deduct a sizable amount from that fee as well. However, as an Army Doctor, you will have a lot of respect, job security and, probably easy working hours and, a more disciplined environment as well.

    If you will go to RMC, you can go abroad like UK, USA or anywhere. However, job security in Pakistan initially will be a problem and if you decide to specialize from Pakistan, due to the scarcity of Post Graduate Training Positions, it is very difficult to get PAID positions for training anywhere. And, you could only be well settled after your FCPS finishes, no matter how long it takes. Then, establishing a patient base takes years as well.
