Active Duty Clerkship Rotations

Requirements of Military Medical Students

Before You Arrive

  • Rotation Request: Ask your school to submit a Rotation Request to DGMC Clerkship: 60mdg.sgt.clerkship@us.af.mil. You will be notified by email when the request has been approved. This process usually takes less than two weeks.
    • (i) ADT Status: Upon approval, request orders for your rotation dates.
    • (ii) Non-ADT Status (Civilian): A training affiliation agreement must be current between DGMC and your school. Many schools are already affiliated, but the GME Office may request additional information. For questions, please call the Clerkship Office.
  • Obtain a DoD CAC Card if you do not already have one. This can be a lengthy process, but it must be done before arriving for your rotation. Students arriving without CAC cards should expect hospital systems access to be delayed 5-7 days.
  • Arrange for Lodging: For those traveling on orders, call (707) 424-8000 to reserve billeting on Travis AFB. If space is not available on base, obtain a Non-Availability Statement from billeting. To avoid incurring personal expense, DO NOT rent a car unless you have prior approval annotated on your orders.
  • In-Processing Checklist: Upon rotation approval, the GME Clerkship Coordinator will provide detailed instructions on providing the required inprocessesing documents. All documents, including the checklist, should be emailed in one packet to 60mdg.sgt.clerkship@us.af.mil NLT 30 days prior to arrival.
