    hiiiiiiiiiiiiii,
    these are few steps those may help you to get your answer


    1-Contact an Army recruiter to enlist in the Army. Bring a copy of your college transcript, 3 to 6 letters of recommendation and a letter of acceptance from an accredited medical school.
    2-Take a physical exam at the local Army recruiting center to qualify as a commissioned officer.
    3-Wait to hear back from the Army recruiter regarding your acceptance into the Program. This process can take anywhere from 2 to 9 months.
    4-Meet with an Army recruiter to sign the contract enlisting you as a member of the Army Health Professionals Scholarship Program.
    5-Maintain full-time status during the entire length of the program by maintaining a full course load (generally 4 courses per semester) as well as a passing GPA in all courses.
    6-Attend the Officers Basic Training Course after the first year of medical school.

    Re: What is the eligibility criteria required to become a Army doctor?

    My friend there are 3 ways to become an army doctor:
    1. You can just go and sign up for the army health professional scholarships. In these scholarships the government pays all the money for your medical education. So you can become a doctor after simple way but after becoming you have to must join army and serve it. No relaxation in opening your own clinic or a job.
    2. You can go for AFMC exam as this college by name itself is an army college and you can go for army doctor through it. You have to atleast 10+2 to get admission in AFMC mbbs entrance and the course.
    3. After your MBBS also you can join indian army as doctor through various exams notified by UPSC.

    GOOD lUCK
