About Us

Naval Hospital Jacksonville is home to the oldest and largest Family Medicine Residency in the Navy. The hospital is a community hospital with 33 active beds. We only sponsor a Family Medicine Residency Program that consists of 13-13-13 residents. Our Family Medicine Clinic has over 14,000 enrolled beneficiaries with over 75,000 outpatient visits per year. We divide the residents and faculty into four Medical Home teams, each of which functions much like a group practice. Residents obtain a superb mix of experiential and academic instruction with an abundance of opportunities for “hands-on” learning. Procedural training is excellent and trains residents to perform vasectomy, colposcopy, exercise treadmill tests, obstetric ultrasonography, and an assortment of minor procedures. Our institution places an emphasis on evidence-based medicine and teaches a scholarly approach to clinical problem solving. The residency and medical student programs benefit greatly from the command’s organizational commitment to educational excellence.
