T he combined 55 Medical Group/ University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) Family Medicine Residency (FMR) Program is a three year training program for active duty USAF physicians located at the 55 Medical Group, Offutt AFB, NE. There are eight resident training slots in each year of training to make a maximum of twenty-four active duty USAF residents. In addition, Offutt is unique in that we offer two training billets every year for a resident to select an Operational Training option which allows them to complete the FMR program and be guaranteed a Flight Medicine assignment at the end of their training. Our mission is to train the most competent and compassionate Air Force family medicine specialists who provide outstanding, cost-effective care, anytime, at home or abroad.
USAF Family Medicine residents are assigned empanelled continuity patients at the 55 MDG, and have responsibility of managing these patients throughout their training. The outpatient experience with continuity patients is the core of Family Medicine resident training. Residents are mentored and supervised by nine Family Medicine Residency faculty and one licensed social worker.
