Military Student Applications

Welcome to the Internal Medicine Residency at Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine (WSUBSOM.) Our Residency is a 36-month training program designed to provide comprehensive training to the next generation of Air Force Internists. Our program is the largest fully integrated residency program, typically accepting 13 military residents/year. Our unique relationship with WSUBSOM allows our residents to learn and train at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, Miami Valley Hospital (regional Level 1 trauma center,) and the Dayton VA Medical Center. Residents receive intense training in inpatient medicine, critical care medicine, outpatient clinic, and internal medicine subspecialties. 
 
WSUBSOM is known for conducting cutting-edge research. Our residency requires completion of one scholarly project for graduation. To present your scholarly work, we will sponsor travel to National Conferences and our American College of Physicians (ACP) chapter meetings. WSUBSOM supports a Research Scholar Pathway that motivated residents may apply for. The residency program presented and/or published over 100 case reports, QI projects, and clinical research projects in the 2016-2017 academic year. Most recently, 12 residents competed at the National Army/ Air Force ACP chapter meeting, receiving 1st prize for original research and 1st prize team for Doctor's Dilemma. 
 
WSUBSOM has implemented a 12 month longitudinal case based learning curriculum this academic year structured upon American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) core objectives. All residents will be provided a road map to ensure preparedness for independent practice in a multitude of settings. Our robust wellness curriculum consists of resident retreats, forums, and dedicated wellness days. The 2017 AF graduates boost a 100% ABIM pass rate.
