    To become a doctor in Indian army you need to complete the MBBS or BDS throgh the AFMC armed force medical college so there is no chance for you to get into the millitary hospital.
    Dear as you said that you are going to complete the MBBS so you are eligible to apply for the CMS.
    CMS stands for the combined medical services examination which is conducted by the union public service commission of india to select the candidates for the 5 posts in different areas.

    -general duty medical officer in NDMC.
    To apply for the same your age needs to be below 32 years. There will be the age relaxation for the SC/ST/OBC candidates.
    Educational qualification -
