not sure if it's too late to reply, but here's my two cents worth. What Grace has posted is on the money, odds on you will meet people in the defence community who will recommend it, where others will tell you horror stories.
But currently being in the defence for the last 18 yrs what I will say is defence life has MANY demands that you won't find in civillian employment, a LOT will be demanded of you, not asked. On the flip side, It also gives a lot back in other ways, travel, varied experiance, and opportunites you won't get else where.
The friendship/mateship is a massive thing in the forces too.
Just get all the information you can, evaluate it for yourself. And if you do get in REMAIN proactive in maintaining your clinical skills, a BIGGY.
