We maintain close ties with the 15 military family medicine residency programs. Most faculty at these programs are adjunct faculty with USU. All military residency programs are strong, with most having maximal accreditation from the ACGME.

Resident Faculty Development Program
We offer a PG-3 elective starting in the fall of each Academic Year. Over the last 13 years, 54 outstanding residents have completed the rotation.
Three to six resident scholars are selected to participate in an interactive, individualized, multi-component curriculum in Faculty Development. The program is targeted at residents with a demonstrated interest and aptitude for teaching and pursuing an academic Family Medicine career in the military. The residents are competitively selected (one to two per branch of service), based on their application package. If selected, the timing of the program is coordinated with the resident and their Program Director.
USU provides the curriculum, materials, education and time for each resident, but cannot provide funding. Costs and specific mechanisms for travel are the responsibility of the resident’s local command. Program leadership works with selected residents to assist with finding local housing through our student network as needed.
The curriculum of the program includes several core elements. Some may be customized to the individual resident’s needs. Core elements include:
Small Group Teaching
