Navy MPH Residency

The Naval Aerospace Medical Institute (NAMI) Residency in Aerospace Medicine (RAM) is a Graduate Medical Education (GME) program for military physicians with a focus on the aerospace and other austere environments of operational military medicine.


The Navy RAM has retained continued accreditation through the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) since 1995.   Residents work with military and civilian medical organizations and engage in research as part of their Master of Public Health degree, which will be completed by the end of the second year of training

During the two years of the residency, residents are concurrently enrolled in the Master of Public Health Program at the University of West Florida while participating in Aerospace Medicine clinical rotations. Through the Master of Public Health degree at the University of West Florida, residents complete graduate courses in epidemiology; biostatistics; health policy; environmental health, behavioral aspects of public health, toxicology and accident investigation/risk management and mitigation (held jointly through the Naval Aviation Safety Officer’s Course)  For additional information visit the Navy Aerospace Medicine and the UWF Program  websites.

Non-Florida residents must indicate that they are active duty military on orders to an installation in Florida, and provide a copy of their orders to Graduate Admissions in order to receive Temporary Residency for in-state tuition.  Failure to do so could result in a debt to the government for non-resident tuition and fees. 

Funding for the program is provided prior to the beginning of each semester by the Navy directly to the University.
