Welcome to the U.S. Air Force's newest Family Medicine Residency!  Fulfilling the vision to expand the number of Air Force Family Physicians, Mike O'Callaghan Federal Medical Center stood up an unopposed training program in 2009, located 20 minutes northeast of Las Vegas, with large civilian hospital training opportunities nearby to augment learning.  In house services are substantial with a full complement of adult medicine specialties, interventional cardiology, inpatient dialysis, ICU and obstetric care.

Drawing upon the expertise from award-winning staff who have taught at civilian and AF programs, we have a constructed a resident friendly program with a heavy emphasis on education, not scut-work.  We have a large and friendly common resident bullpen work area with space for rotating students, an adjacent 50 person conference room and multiple small group education and procedure rooms.

Throughout second and third year, residents participate in a total of 6 weeks total of our night float system.  This allows a variety of opportunities to gain greater independence and autonomy, in addition to gaining valuable obstetric experience.  Our night float system has also allowed us to maximize daytime learning with each resident averaging only 2 calls per year.  While we boast an outstanding selection of rotations with sub-specialists, the bedrock of resident education lies in an immersive experience in managing your own panel of continuity patients.  Emphasis is also placed on developing residents as physician leaders in the patient-centered medical home.  We have a proven track record of preparing our residents to be not only proficient, but also efficient in providing high quality trusted care, anywhere.
