The FRO is the channel for official information from the command to the families, utilizing the FRA's and the Command Ombudsman, the FRO disseminates timely and critical information, regularly, via telephone and e-mail. The FRO also serves as a referral source to military and civilian support organizations like, Fleet and Family Support Centers, American Red Cross, Navy and Marine Corps Relief Society, Chaplains, medical facilities, and legal assistance offices. These organizations are valuable resources in obtaining assistance for command family members and providing support to family members seeking professional assistance and counseling.

We are the only residency program in the facility, providing robust exposure to primary care, inpatient care, maternity and newborn care, Sports Medicine, and procedural training. Our residents perform nearly every procedure a Family Physician can do including minor procedures, joint injections, acupuncture, point-of-care ultrasound, vasectomy, colposcopy and LEEP, exercise treadmill testing, obstetrical ultrasound, and vaginal delivery.


We graduate leaders. Residents achieve increasing independence and responsibility during their time here. They become teachers for their junior residents and clinical team. They become recognized leaders in the hospital as active participants in process improvement and key members on the hospital committees that influence patient care policy.


We have 13 full-time Family Medicine faculty, all board-certified and passionate about resident education. Backgrounds are diverse, including a wealth of operational military experience and a strong corps of civilian physicians from across the country. Numerous faculty have fellowship training and Certificates of Additional Qualification (CAQ) in Faculty Development, Geriatrics, and Sports Medicine. We are also the host program for the Navy's only Sports Medicine Primary Care Fellowship.


We are a proud member of the medical community in San Diego County, enjoying long-standing partnerships with regional facilities that enhance the diversity and quality of the resident experience. Our residents rotate with experts at Naval Medical Center San Diego (NICU, ICU, Endocrinology), Rady Children's Hospital (Inpatient Pediatrics, Pediatric Emergency Medicine), Tri-city Hospital (Inpatient Adult Medicine), and Palomar Hospital (Trauma Emergency Medicine).

We hope to give all medical students a broad experience in Family Medicine and a clear understanding of who we are. Students spend most of their time in the clinic caring for patients with faculty and residents. They also spend time on the inpatient service and have opportunities to work on Labor & Delivery and with our Sports Medicine team.
