The extent of military medicine topics taught in military family practice residency programs : Part II. A survey of residency graduates from 1987-1990.
The Military Unique Curricula (MUC) was published in 1988 as a guideline for instruction at military residencies in military-specific topics.
Questionnaires were sent to 464 military family practice residency graduates from 1987-1990 to evaluate the degree of implementation of the MUC and attitudes and logistical factors relevant to military medicine instruction in military family practice residencies.
Analysis reveals a range of opinions regarding the importance of military medicine and the amount of instruction on military medicine topics offered among programs.
The total number of topics offered for instruction was positively correlated (p<0.05) with the time available to teach the material, a perception that the material would not be best learned at the Combat Casualty Care Course, and the presence of a specific military medicine curriculum within the residency.
This survey provides baseline information for future evaluation of the influence of MUC on military medicine instruction in residency programs.
Suggestions are offered to improve instruction on military medicine topics in military family practice residencies.
