Resident Rotations

The following is a listing of the clinical rotations done by Family Medicine residents at Travis Air Force Base Family Medicine Residency. There are 13 4-week blocks per year.

Most of the rotations occur at David Grant Medical Center. A few rotations denoted below take place at other hospitals. The outside rotations add valuable clinical and cultural experience not typically seen at David Grant. Of the outside institutions, one is a large academic center in a metropolitan environment (UCDavis in Sacramento) where we complete some of our emergency medicine and pediatric rotations, with access to a Level 1 trauma center and a renowned children's hospital. Contra Costa Regional Medical Center is in the East Bay area in Martinez, CA and is a well-respected family-medicine run county hospital. Lastly, Santa Clara Valley Medical Center in San Jose, CA runs one of the largest labor and delivery units in the state, which provides us with obstetric experience far beyond what can be seen in a military training facility. Overall, these opportunities greatly strengthen the overall training and improve the perspective of our residents as it incorporates different populations, hospital systems, EMRs, and most importantly, medical experiences.

Listed below are the current rotations for the 2015-2016 academic year.
