I got number 329 in the first draft lottery, so I was pretty much assured of not getting called.  I revoked my education deferment and exposed myself to the draft when I started medical school in 1971. The medical draft continued to age 35, but according to those I talked to at the time, if I made myself eligible for the regular draft and was not called, then I would not be called in the doctors’ draft.  In 1973, however, I applied for and accepted a commission in the U. S. Navy Medical Corps, which I held until 1982, serving as a Ready Reservist, with my moblization billet the
2nd Marine Division as a battalion surgeon, and later as an Active Duty staff urologist at Naval Regional Medical Center, San Diego.
