Public Health and General Preventive Medicine Residency
The General Preventive Medicine (GPM) residency is a two-year program for military physicians, consisting of didactics and practicum activities. To enter the residency, candidates must have already completed a clinical internship or first year of a clinical residency program. During the PGY2 year, the residents work toward a Masters degree, usually a Master of Public Health (MPH) degree at USUHS. The primary objective of the PGY2 year is to provide a solid foundation in the core disciplines of public health: epidemiology, biostatistics, environmental health, health services administration, and social/behavioral aspects of public health. GPM residents in the MPH program typically elect a specialty track in epidemiology, tropical public health, health services administration, or a generalist track.
