Preventive Medicine (Public Health)
The Public Health Residency Program at Madigan is the only installation-based preventive medicine residency program sponsored by the Department of Defense. The residency program emphasizes the clinical, operational and management aspects of preventive medicine practice at a large installation in which we serve as the installation health department.
CLINICAL RESPONSIBILITIES: The Preventive Medicine Department provides clinical preventive services primarily involving Sexually Transmitted Diseases, Tuberculosis and Communicable Disease Control, Tobacco Cessation, Occupational Medicine, Travel and Deployment medicine. In addition, residents actively participate in the Preventive Medicine Consultation Service to Madigan (both inpatient and outpatient), Fort Lewis (I Corps, Special Forces, and Rangers) and supported installations in the region.
ROTATIONS: The residency strives to identify the best training available in various aspects of public health. Rotations are based on clinical, public health program management, civilian county public health, and both academic and overseas military research project experiences.
RESEARCH: Residents will complete a thesis-level research project over the two-year MPH degree and residency. The faculty support a broad based research program which emphasizes the surveillance of emergent health problems and the design of new public health assessment techniques and health promotion programs.
The residency program faculty is comprised of board certified physicians in the two subspecialty areas of preventive medicine (Public Health & General Preventive Medicine and Occupational Medicine). Faculty are derived from the Preventive Medicine Department, I Corps Surgeon's Office, local public health agencies and the University of Washington.
