Program Description

WAMC Family Medicine Residency is one of the largest residencies in the Army, taking up to nine residents per class. Fort Liberty is the largest U.S. military installation in the world and is home to the largest concentration of operational units, including the legendary 82nd Airborne Division, XVIII Airborne Corps, U.S. Army Special Operations Command, U.S. Army Forces Command, and the U.S. Army Reserve Command. Fort Liberty’s large concentration of both active duty and civilian personnel allows Womack Army Medical Center to provide health care to more than 200,000 service members, retirees, and their family members.

Because of the robust and diverse patient population we serve, our residents regularly work with patients with complex disease processes while also mastering the care of the routine illnesses and injuries. Similarly, our large patient population provides an unparalleled breadth and depth of patient care experiences and learning opportunities in outpatient, inpatient, obstetric, pediatric, sports medicine, and operational medicine environments. Our regional partnerships with both Cape Fear Valley Medical Center and Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center also provide additional resident exposure to medically complex patients in intensive care and emergency department environments. WAMC is also home to the only hospitalist fellowship program within the Department of Defense, graduating 1-2 fellows per year. These fellows are passionate clinicians and educators who broaden resident educational opportunities in the hospital setting, including additional teaching related to point-of-care ultrasound. These clinical experiences combined with our dynamic academic curriculum provide a rigorous and unrivaled educational experience for our graduates.

The program fosters an environment of personal and professional wellness, where the stress and rigors of residency training are balanced by camaraderie, active duty and civilian mentorship, hospital-wide wellness events, resident-led advocacy, and evidence-based self-care learning integrated throughout the program. Our program has a 100% pass rate for the Family Medicine Board Exam for the last seven years and have won the Uniformed Services Academy of Family Practice Residency Research Award for Family Medicine in the entire Army, Air Force, and Navy in 2015 and 2020. We also have faculty trained in a diversity of Army Fellowships including Sports Medicine, Obstetrics, Hospitalist Medicine, and Faculty Development. Our faculty strive to ensure our graduates develop into Family Medicine physicians who are well-rounded in their academic success and clinical experiences while feeling empowered to pursue their personal and military aspirations.
