Welcome to the Travis AFB Family Medicine Residency Program
The Family Practice Residency Program at David Grant Medical Center was established in 1978. It has long been one of the premier Family Practice residency programs in the Air Force and the nation. Today the accredited program trains 30 residents a year (10-10-10) in a variety of inpatient and outpatient settings. Residents train at David Grant Medical Center (DGMC), 60th Medical Group, both in the Family Practice Clinic and on other specialty rotations, as well as other designated training sites. DGMC is a full service, 245 bed, acute care facility which serves as a referral center for the western region of the United States. Consultation services are available with board certified individuals in all departments. In the first year of training, the program emphasizes inpatient management of medical problems, largely through rotations on a variety of specialty services. In the second year, inpatient skills are refined and greater exposure to outpatient clinics is provided. During the third year, the emphasis is within the model family practice unit, integrating acquired knowledge into the total primary health care of families.
