GME Application Instructions

** ALL 2019 APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS HAVE BEEN UPDATED AND ARE POSTED BELOW. **

** THE MODS WEBSITE IS PROJECTED TO GO OFFLINE ON OR ABOUT 24 AUGUST 2019 FOR MAINTENANCE. PLEASE PLAN ACCORDINGLY TO ENSURE YOUR APPLICATION IS SUBMITTED. **

GME applications are submitted through the Medical Operational Data System (MODS) website. However, MODS will not be accessible from computers that are not on the military network through the application cycle  Therefore, applicants, Medical School Officials, and non-military Letter Writers will not be able to access MODS via personal or school computers. For applicants that are in medical school, in a deferred/re-deferred status, or in a civilian sponsored status, a fillable PDF application is available on the Physician Education website at: http://www.airforcemedicine.af.mil/Organizations/Physician-Education-Branch/Application-Instructions/. This fillable PDF application and a PDF CV may be submitted to the Air Force Physician Education’s organizational email (AFPC.DP2NP.PhysicianEducation@us.af.mil) from 1 July 2019 – 31 August 2019. Handwritten and late applications will not be accepted. These applications will then have to be transcribed line by line into MODS by the Physician Education program managers.

If applicants will have access to a computer on the military network between 1 July 2019 - 31 August 2019 (e.g., during an ADT), they are encouraged to submit their application and CV during this time through MODS. Medical School Officials and non-military Letter Writers may submit LORs, transcripts, licensing exam scores, and MSPEs via the Air Force Physician Education's organizational email (AFPC.DP2NP.PhysicianEducation@us.af.mil).
