Residents - Air Force Emergency Room and
Medical Officer of the Day (MOD)
Revised July 1996
At the present time, there is no MOD requirement for military residents assigned to Wright-Patterson Medical Center. However, the BSOM supports in principle the assignment of duties as MOD for Air Force physicians in training, provided that the MOD duties do not interfere with the ability of the resident to meet training program requirements and obligations. Should the need of the Air Force change in the future, resident assignment to MOD schedules could be resumed, and added to the usual requirements of the residency program. Any such duty would be monitored closely to prevent total work hours per week from exceeding mandated standards.
