International Travel

One of the most exciting aspects of our residency program is the ability to participate in missions to international locations. These missions can take several forms, from providing humanitarian assistance, to working in military research laboratories learning about tropical infectious diseases, to attending international conferences. Residents have recently traveled to places such as American Samoa, Australia, Indonesia, Korea, Thailand, Palau, the Marshall Islands, Peru, Nepal and Kenya.

Residents may rotate at Landstuhl Regional Medical Center in Germany and spend four weeks working in the trauma ICU. Interns and residents also have the opportunity to travel to various conferences and courses. These include the Army/Air Force chapter meeting of the American College of Physicians (ACP), the national ACP meeting, the Management of Chemical and Biological Casualties Course, the Asia-Pacific Military Medicine Conference, and board review courses held in various locations.

Due to funding limitations, off-island rotations are considered electives and are not guaranteed. Residents may need to independently secure funding for some off-island rotations.
