About Us

Family Medicine Residency Program

Camp Lejeune Family Medicine Residency was established in 2003.  To date, the program has graduated 125 Family Medicine Physicians, six Family Medicine Obstetrics Fellows, and 143 Interns for service to the Navy and Marine Corps. Our mission is to train physicians who are prepared to practice comprehensive Family Medicine. This is accomplished through a rigorous program that emphasizes quality patient care, research, pre-doctoral education, ABFM certification, and Navy Medical Corp Officer development. Achieving this will allow us to become the residency of choice for medical students, residents, and faculty. Since 2012, each graduating class member has had a 100% pass rate on their American Academy of Family Physicians board certification exam.
The educational curriculum of our rotation schedule outlined below is supplemented by a weekly lecture block on Thursday afternoons. Lectures are prepared and provided primarily by the Family Medicine faculty and supplemented by various subspecialty faculty. Monthly Morbidity and Mortality reports as well as Journal Clubs are utilized to foster reflective practice, continuous improvement, and academic pursuit.

Family Medicine-Obstetrics Fellowship:

Additionally we offer and run the only Family Medicine-Obstetrics Fellowship in the Navy, which has graduated six fellows. The purpose of this fellowship is to train Family Medicine Physicians to be competent in performing surgical obstetrics and manage high risk obstetric patients in the antepartum, intrapartum, and postpartum periods. Our expectation is that graduates of this fellowship will be leaders in family medicine-obstetrics practice and become teachers at a Family Medicine Residency or augment Obstetric resources overseas.
Over the seven years of fellowship our fellows have completed their year of training each with approximately 200 primary cesarean sections. They undergo additional potential training during the year in obstetric ultrasound, LEEP, colposcopy, and D&C.

Family Medicine Clerkships:

If you are a Medical Student at USU, or an HPSP or HSCP candidate we would love to have you rotate with us for a Family Medicine Clerkship. Clerkship experience consists of:
  • Inpatient Medicine
  • Labor & Delivery
  • Operational Medicine

  • Sports Medicine Clinic
  • Procedures Clinic
  • Weekly Didactics
