Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences Campus
About
At the Uniformed Services University, you will find a traditional academic health center with an additional mission that is unlike any other institution of learning--to provide the nation with health professionals dedicated to career service in the Department of Defense and the United States Public Health Service.
Education at the Uniformed Services University is unique in many ways. For one, students attending the F. Edward H├ębert School of Medicine and the Graduate School of Nursing learn in a multi-service environment. Although the differences between the Army, Air Force, Navy and Public Health Service are distinct, a sense of shared purpose distinguishes the students here and fosters a pervasive and inimitable spirit of teamwork.
Students do not incur the costly financial debt of traditional medical schools and graduate programs because their tuition is waived by the Department of Defense. Students also receive the full salary and benefits of a junior officer in exchange for a seven year service commitment.
The School of Medicine and Graduate School of Nursing curriculums are similar to their civilian counterparts, however, learning objectives harness specialized educational elements geared toward producing career uniformed officers.
Students attend year round and those in the School of Medicine receive 700 additional hours of education that focus largely on areas such as epidemiology, health promotion, leadership and field exercise, disease prevention and tropical medicine.
Mission
