UC Davis Emergency Medicine USAF Residency Match Program
About Our USAF Residency Match Program
Beginning with the 2017-18 academic year (2016-17 match cycle), the UC Davis emergency medicine residency program, in collaboration with the United States Air Force will offer two active duty training positions in each new residency class. Interested applicants from the USUHS, HPSP-affiliated programs , and current active duty physicians should apply through the Joint Services GME Selection Board . Integrated Air Force residents will complete the same ACGME-accredited 3-year core emergency medicine curriculum as their civilian counterparts. Integrated residents will be on active duty orders throughout their training and will be entitled to pay and benefits commensurate to their rank and grade. Graduates of the program are eligible for board certification by the American Board of Emergency Medicine. Upon completion of integrated residency training, Air Force graduates will enter into the Air Force Medical Corps as Emergency Medicine physicians (AFSC 44E3). The significance of this partnership cannot be overstated for the health of Air Force medical training and the future of military medicine in general.
