    I was looking at the FYGME grid on HPSP mods for prelim anesthesiology programs. It includes a VA-DoD option. Does anyone know where this program is located or if its a typo? Also which prelim programs funnel into BAMC and which one funnel into WRAMC anesthesiology residency programs?

    I think that VA-DoD bit for Anesthesiology is a typo. I don't recall it being mentioned in any of the FYGME application packets this year. In fact: "This initiative, referred to as the VA-DoD training program, will be offered to graduates in the class of 2009 in the specialties of Emergency Medicine, Neurosurgery, Radiology and Urology."

    As for funneling, BAMC and WBAMC feed into BAMC, while WRAMC, EAMC, MAMC, and TAMC feed in to WRAMC.

    There was previously an active duty Army resident at the University of Maryland (one graduating this year). I do not know if they have done away with this option or not.
