    Here are some helpful links that should answer your questions:

    http://www.asma.org/Publication/ppframe.htm
    http://www.utmb.edu/pmr/am.htm
    http://www.med.wright.edu/asm/res/r.htm
    http://www.brooks.af.mil/web/ram/residen.htm
    http://usmilitary.about.com/library/milinfo/afoffjobs/bl48gx.htm

    I can't say for certain about the competetiveness of these residency programs, but my understanding is that most preventative medicine residency programs are fairly non-competetive to get, particularly if you are a US student, because so few students know about them and the avg salary is less then other specialties (90-140K).
