Lots of opportunity to do stuff. Part depends on your specialty. Not much need for an OB/Gyn or peds Doc as a "Surgeon" with an Infantry BDE, but Emergency Med, Surgery, or even Internal medicine will probably land you on the short list to a hospital in Iraq. Even the Family Practice docs used to routinely deploy to NTC--had an acquaintance that was assigned as the Hospital Commander at Bragg and the then XVIII Corps Commander insisted that he go to jump school before reporting---45 year old full colonel doc in jump school!!!
