Program Description

The Nellis Family Medicine Residency (FMR) at Mike O'Callaghan Military Medical Center, situated at Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas, Nevada, provides a comprehensive and robust training experience. Located within a Military Medical Center with Level III Trauma credentials, our program affords residents the opportunity to work with a diverse patient population, gaining exposure to a high volume and complexity of cases. We also partner with outside facilities to maximize learner education including rotations at University Medical Center (UMC), Sunrise Hospital and Sunrise Children's hospital, Volunteer Medicine of Southern Nevada (VMSN) and Yosemite National Park Service.

Our faculty includes a harmonious blend of active duty and civilian physicians with varied backgrounds, experiences, and fellowship training. Central to our program is the fostering of a supportive and compassionate culture, where we emphasize the values of mutual care, growth mindset, and continuous pursuit of excellence through fairness, trust, and open communication. We are dedicated to guiding medical students and young physicians in honing the unique skills of Family Medicine that will serve them well in any future specialty.

Our program provides a comprehensive introduction to Family Medicine for third-year medical students, with a focus on common clinic issues. Students actively engage in a variety of procedures and gain valuable experience in inpatient medicine, critical care, obstetrics, and wilderness medicine. Fourth-year medical students have the chance to delve even deeper into their learning, with additional offerings such as flight medicine and other distinctive aspects of our medical group. During their fourth year, students can participate in a sub-internship rotation, where they take on greater responsibility, including the management of their own clinic patients.

U.S. medical students with active duty service commitments (HPSP or USU) are welcome to request rotations within our facility. Additionally, we host 2nd and third-year students from Uniformed Services University School of Medicine, and third year students from Touro University, and UNLV. Rotation requests within the Family Medicine Residency Clinic are encouraged at least nine months in advance to ensure a seamless experience. Opportunities are also available to rotate through various departments within our facility.
