Authorized by act of September 21, 1972 (10 U.S.C. 2112), the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences was established to educate career-oriented medical officers for the military services. It is a separate agency of the Department of Defense, directly responsible to the Secretary of Defense (Department of Defense Directive 5105.45).
The University currently incorporates the F. Edward Hébert School of
Medicine and graduate and continuing education programs. It is located on the Naval Medical Command reservation in Bethesda, MD.
Students are selected by procedures recommended by the Board of Regents and prescribed by the Secretary of Defense. The actual selection is carried out by a faculty committee on admissions and is based upon motivation and dedication to a career in the uniformed services and an overall appraisal of the personal and intellectual characteristics of the candidates without regard to sex, race, religion, or national origin. Applicants must be U.S. citizens. Matriculants will be commissioned
officers in one of the uniformed services. They must meet the physical and
personal qualifications for such a commission and must give evidence of a strong commitment to serving as a uniformed medical officer. The graduating medical student is required to serve a period of obligation of not less than 7 years.
Currently, there are approximately 640 officers training for their M.D. degrees in the University's F. Edward Hébert School of Medicine and approximately 120 individuals enrolled in one of the University's graduate programs in the basic sciences.
The University's graduate program is fully accredited and is available to both civilian and military applicants. Graduates may receive the Ph.D. degree in one of the biomedical sciences, the master of public health degree, or the master of tropical medicine and hygiene degree. In addition, the University serves as the focus for a vigorous continuing medical education program that supports the military services by providing unique training opportunities both at the University's Bethesda campus and at military bases around the world, where such training would not otherwise be available.
