Dr. Charles Rice, President

Welcome to the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. We invite you to explore our website to learn more about this great university, including the unique academic experiences and continued traditions of excellence in military and public health medicine that make USU a special place.

Our scholars pursue high standards of education in order to gain the skills and competencies necessary to practice good medicine in challenging environments. Our graduating physicians, advanced practice nurses, dentists and biomedical scientists protect the health of our nation's soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines. Therefore, we take great efforts to ensure the USU experience holistically prepares health care professionals to meet the unique challenges of military medicine and public health and succeed in any environment.

This clear vision has steered USU from its inception four decades ago, and serves as the guiding principal as the university continues to grow and evolve into a world class academic health center.
