Program Description

Camp Lejeune Family Medicine Residency was established in 2003. Physicians are trained through a rigorous program that emphasizes quality patient care, research, pre-doctoral education, American Board of Family Medicine (ABFM) certification, and Navy Medical Corps Officer development. Achieving this will allow graduates to become the leaders in Navy medicine and become competent and confident in their clinical practice and ensure that their patients receive exceptional care. Since 2012, each graduating class member has had a 100% pass rate on their American Academy of Family Physicians board certification exam.

Additionally, Camp Lejeune offers and runs the only Family Medicine-Obstetrics Fellowship in the Navy, which has graduated six fellows. The purpose of this fellowship is to train Family Medicine Physicians to be competent in performing surgical obstetrics and manage high risk obstetric patients in the antepartum, intrapartum, and postpartum periods. Our expectation is that graduates of this fellowship will be leaders in family medicine-obstetrics practice and become teachers at a Family Medicine Residency or augment Obstetric resources overseas. 

Camp Lejeune also is the home to a Sports Medicine Fellowship, which currently supports the development of two fellows annually but anticipates growing to a capacity of four fellows. The partnership with sports medicine and the US Marines supports the operational readiness of Marines as well as the Marine special operations group designated Raiders. The partnership of the Sports Medicine fellowship with the Family Medicine residency enhances the graduate medical education strategically pertaining to musculoskeletal medicine and procedures.
