Prior to his career as a physician, Dr. Erik Bernhoffer enlisted in the United States Navy and received an NROTC scholarship, later earning honorable discharge.

The Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps (NROTC) offers full scholarships to participants in its programs. This includes full tuition for a baccalaureate degree at any of the colleges or universities on its list of institutions, as well as uniforms, a stipend for books, and a monthly allowance.

Those eligible for NROTC full scholarships include United States citizens beginning their post-secondary education between the ages of 17 and 23. Active members of the military may also apply. All applicants must pass physical requirements of the Navy or Marine Corps, be free of any tattoos or body piercing that violate military policy, and possess a willingness to bear arms in defense of the United States Constitution.

NROTC students may choose from three possibilities for their military career following their graduation: becoming a second lieutenant in the U.S. Marine Corps, a U.S. Navy ensign, or an ensign with the Navy Nursing Corps.
