Family Medicine Residency
Welcome to the best of military family medicine! The National Capital Consortium Family Medicine Residency at Alexander T. Augusta (A.T. Augusta) Military Medical Center, formerly Fort Belvoir Community Hospital, is the military’s first and only tri-service family medicine training program. Prior to becoming a joint program in 2007, it was originally one of the oldest family medicine residencies in the Army. Initially established in 1973 and with more than 250 graduates, the residency sets the benchmark for excellence in family medicine education.
Structured as an unopposed 15-15-15 program, the residency currently trains six Army, four Air Force and five Navy residents in each class. The program is sponsored by the National Capital Consortium at the Uniformed Services University and is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.
Serving a regional population of more than 250,000 beneficiaries, A.T. Augusta Military Medical Center has a robust obstetrical service, newborn nursery, inpatient service, ICU, subspecialty consultant services and outpatient clinics. Family Medicine alone cares for more than 25,000 empanelled patients providing more than 4,000 visits each month.

In addition, the residency sponsors the military’s only joint Family Medicine-Sports Medicine Fellowship program.
