Important Information for Military Residents
Long-Term Health Education and Training (LTHET)
Full-time, DOD-subsidized (military-sponsored) health or health-related education or training in a military or civilian facility of 26 weeks or more including education or training received in preparation for commissioning as a health professions officer and subsequent commissioning.
A 1-year residency in pharmacy specialties is available to Active Duty (AD) pharmacy officers and new officer accessions who qualify for a commission as a pharmacist. An AD officer will not be in competition with a new accession as the ceiling for residency positions has been increased to accommodate this recruiting tool. New accessions will not be offered residencies until after AD officers have been selected. AD officers should refer to the annual message on LTHET to determine eligibility criteria and specialty residencies offered.
The Long Term Health Education and Training (LTHET) selection board convenes every year around May to select a(n) active duty resident(s). Individuals selected to receive training as a PGY-1 Pharmacy Resident at Womack Army Medical Center (WAMC) receive one-year appointments as residents assigned to the Department of Pharmacy.
