Anyone done FTOS for Emergency Medicine Residency (or any MD residency?)

 My husband was selected for Full Time Outservice to complete his residency as an ER physician- but we (and the others we have talked to on this years FTOS) are having difficulty getting civilian programs to consider it.  Any advice? Anyone gone through this route?

 My BIL did a residency through the Navy (he had a Naval medical school scholarship); he was actually with the Marines in Okinawa.  I know that he started his residency in Philadelphia, got called back to serve, and then finished his residency in Boston at a different hospital.  He worked in EM with the Marines, but he was actually a pediatric resident.  He got extra credit on his time for serving in Okinawa and got back to his residency much quicker by doing that.  HTH.
