First make sure you are 18 years old and a legal U.S. Citizen by birth or naturalization or have Permanent Resident Status/Green Card. You do not have any past criminal convictions/felonies. (misdeamenors can be waived) 1. Get either a H.S. Diploma or a GED. 2. Go talk to a military recruiter. I recommend you talk to more than just one recruiter from one branch of military service. Best option is to talk to them all: Air Force, Navy, Marines, Army, Coast Guard. 3. Once you spoke to several recruiters and decided which branch you want to serve in. Have your recruiter schedule you to take the ASVAB and go to MEPS. (Military Entrance Processing Station) 4. Score high on the ASVAB (50 and higher the better your chances) and a list of medical jobs that you qualify for that are available at that momment will be presented to you. So keep your nose clean and prepare yourself well to take the ASVAB and there should be no reason you won't be able to get a medical job.
