Of the many decisions a physician makes along their career path, residency choice is one of the most important. The Family Medicine residency program at Eglin Air Force Base offers comprehensive training in full-scope care of the whole family. We provide a unique balance between workload and academic opportunities for the residents who desire excellence for themselves and their patients. Here you will learn state of the art primary care in a modern facility from a group of colleagues and mentors who exemplify traditional family medicine values while embracing the future of our field.
Eglin Air Force Base Hospital is the home of the residency and the 96th Medical Group. The 96th Medical Group provides comprehensive medical care to approximately 92,000 eligible beneficiaries (active duty military members, retirees, and their families). The hospital is accredited by the Joint Commission. It currently has a six-bed intensive care unit and a 53-bed facility. As a teaching facility, the hospital has an active residency program in dentistry and family practice medicine allowing residents the opportunity to develop and enrich their clinical and academic capabilities. The 96th Medical Group provides a wide variety of outpatient services and presently supports one of the larger outpatient workloads in the Air Force.
