Welcome, Future Army Physicians!
Are you interested in Family Medicine? If you are, please consider this letter an open invitation to rotate at the Martin Army Community Hospital (BMACH) Family Medicine Residency located at Fort Benning, Georgia!
The BMACH FM residency offers one of a kind training and opportunities that cannot be found in any other FM training program in the nation. The residency is a 8/9/9 program that routinely graduates some of the most well rounded and sought after FM Physicians within the Army (historical 99% FM Board pass rate.) Our goal is to completely prepare residents for whatever future situations they may experience as both as a Family Medicine Physician and a US Army Officer.
How is our program unique? How do we successfully prepare our residents for whatever the future may hold? The answer is easy. We are a truly unopposed residency positioned within the largest Community Hospital in the Army. Our location on Fort Benning allows us to offer the opportunity for our residents to attend a variety of military schools (Airborne, Air Assault, and occasionally even the Flight Surgeon course). This is something offered at no other residency in the nation. Any resident that is interested and physically fit, can attend Airborne or any other school available, which opens more doors to operational jobs upon residency graduation. Our graduates routinely go on to positions within the Special Operations community.
These opportunities are not the only thing that sets our residency apart. Our residents have priority for all procedures and are involved in the primary management of all hospitalized patients (ICU included). This combined with our robust full-time teaching staff of 9 physicians (including 8 who are fellowship trained), assures that your education will be strong both didactically and experientially. Our unopposed program also gives you the opportunity to focus your training in areas that interest you. Multiple residents have graduated with significant experience in primary c-sections, and have been credentialed to perform c-sections at their first duty station. Our Endoscopy tract has successfully allowed residents to be credentialed in colonoscopy upon graduation. We truly believe each of our residents is prepared for any job their future may hold.
The Columbus area also has much to offer. It is an excellent community with an affordable cost of living. Both the residency and the community are very family friendly. Outdoor recreation abounds with the Columbus Urban Whitewater Rafting and Kayaking Course, close proximity to Callaway Gardens, and a three to four hour drive to the beaches of Florida. There are abundant opportunities to experience the fine arts at the Springer Opera House, and lots of local shopping is available. The downtown has a strong live music scene, and Columbus is only 30 minutes from Auburn University’s campus (SEC Football, and other diverse cultural activities), and 80-90 minutes to Atlanta (professional sports and all that a major metropolitan area has to offer).
Come experience all that the BMACH FM Residency has to offer! 2, 4, 6, and 8 week rotations are available. If you are doing an unfunded rotation, with enough notice, our residents will generally host prospective students.
