Program Description

Since 1974, the Eisenhower Family Medicine Residency Program has honored the tradition of graduating excellent Army Family Physicians who are superb clinicians and leaders in the military and in their communities. Dwight David Eisenhower Army Medical Center (DDEAMC) offers a unique medical center environment where family medicine is both an essential element to its success and was established as its first residency program. Our residents enjoy the many incredible opportunities that come with a variety of complex medical cases that sharpen their clinical skills and hone their confidence. They gain mastery in those procedures essential to being an Army Family Physician in the twenty-first century, and a first-class education that readies them for the deployed environment.

The DDEAMC Family Medicine Residency is truly a unique army family medicine program. It is housed in a large medical center which affords boundless opportunities to interact with every subspecialty, yet embodies a “small hospital” community where family medicine residents exercise autonomy when taking care of their patients. Truly, the best of both worlds! Family Medicine residents are considered peers to our other specialty colleagues and are encouraged to learn from plentiful hands-on patient experiences and relevant didactics. We embody a “family” atmosphere where teaching is considered a privilege and joy.

Residents have immediate access to a dedicated, superb board-certified family medicine teaching staff and to a wide variety of sub-specialists to help broaden their fund of knowledge and assist them in applying their knowledge to patients. Our training emphasizes on-site precepting, regular chart reviews, and close monitoring of patient care to progressively prepare residents for competent, compassionate, continuous, and comprehensive care.

We take seriously the job of educating the future leaders of family medicine. We invite you to visit or rotate with us, as we are convinced that the time you spend here will leave a lasting, positive impression upon you. Come experience the tradition firsthand!
