Our residents are phenomenal! Moreover, they have an inherent desire to balance their intensive training with commitments to family and friends. Well roundedness is encouraged at all levels in our residency. Our residents matriculate from all over the country bringing with them a unique set of talents that are fostered in a “family” environment. This close-knit atmosphere provides ample room to grow individually while encouraging residents to give back to the program that gave them so much.
EAMC Family Medicine residency strives to meet the needs of today’s residents. We fully realize that personal and family interests do not cease with the start of residency. In light of this, we acknowledge these needs in the following ways:
A multitude of annual and “off-the-cuff” social activities that are very family friendly
"Off the Cuff"
Our faculty boast numerous accomplishments both in and out of the residency. But what is even more impressive is their commitment to drop everything and teach you anything, anytime, anywhere. They will serve as outstanding advisors, desirable role models, and indelible mentors. Students continuously rate their experience at EAMC among the very best rotations with the impressive faculty at the forefront of their comments.
We have over 20 board-certified faculty who are both active duty and civilian physicians. Many of our military and civilian faculty have been deployed to various worldwide locations giving them first-hand experience of the challenges and joys of military medicine. Our civilian faculty, who nearly all have prior military service, give stability to a teaching environment that is not immune to the high deployment tempo of their military colleagues (we like to call them “sabbaticals”). All military residency programs must answer this challenge. This is our answer.
The large number of faculty not only affords copious practice styles in which to observe and emulate but also gives us the unique position of allowing nearly 1:1 resident/faculty academic advising and mentoring. We feel that this provides a more personal atmosphere of professional development. Fellowship trained faculty abound with 1 sports medicine, 1 obstetrical, and 5 faculty development fellows. We also have 3 pediatricians on our teaching faculty and one med-peds faculty member which help offer even more perspectives for our residents to learn from.
