Navy Medicine’s newest residency, CLFMR began in 2003 and has graduated 51 fully competent Family Medicine Physicians to date.  The guiding principle of the residency is continuity of care and individual commitment to a panel of military families.  The residents participate as part of the Medical Home Team allowing the patient better potential for access to their doctor, promoting both doctor and patient satisfaction.

Mission: We train superb family physicians to provide force health protection to Sailors, Marines, retirees and their families.

Patient Base: There are currently 25,000 TRICARE patients enrolled to the facility, with approximately 2500 ER visits and ~200 deliveries per month.  Approximately 13,000 of these are assigned to CLFMR.

Facts about Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune: Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune (NHCL) is almost as old as the base itself, having been activated in 1943.  The current hospital facility, however, is one of the newest in the South, opening in 1983.  There are beds for 82 inpatients, with the ability to expand, plus general and specialty care outpatient clinics.  The facility is built on a 162-acre site just inside the main gate of Camp Lejeune. 

Mission Statement: To serve our military community through excellence in patient and family centered care, readiness and professional development.

Facts about Camp Lejeune/Jacksonville Area: Camp Lejeune is a family oriented community on the southeast coast of NC.  Hot summers and mild winters allow a tremendous variety of outdoor and recreational activities for adults and children, both on base and nearby.  These include sailing, boating, hiking, cycling, hunting, fishing, beaches (& beach houses), golf and swimming.  Affordable housing, low crime rates, good schools-both public and parochial, inexpensive dining, and southern hospitality are the rule.  Wilmington is an hour away, with its shopping, history, culture, and fine dining.  Raleigh /Durham is 3 hours, and the Blue Ridge Mountains and Washington DC are ~6 hours away.  A particular draw to the area is the safe, small town atmosphere, with Civil War historical sites and a coastal aquarium within a 1-hour drive.  Fabulous beach resorts are located close to the area.

For more information, contact Rae Griggs, the GME Coordinator. We offer clerkships in Family Medicine, Sports Medicine and others as requested.
