Welcome to the Uniformed Services University! As the USUHS Religious Ministry Team, we want to provide for your free exercise of religion. All the personnel, staff, students and their families can call on our support through counsel, worship, and training activities which support character development and spiritual formation. All of these are necessary for personal, professional, and military excellence, readiness, and mission accomplishment.

The Command Religious Program is embedded in the Brigade and functions as a part of the military team that will prepare you for your essential staff position as a medical professional. We are located just inside of Building C, right of the entrance.

Since the University mission revolves around our students, so does the design of our religious program. Faith-specific Student Associations are formed as needs arise. Faculty and staff are encouraged to participate in the Student Association of their choice and support/mentor the students in their spiritual formation in a similar manner as they do academically. Within regulations under the University President and the Brigade Commander, and administered by the Office of the Chaplain, the Student Associations are self-governed to meet the needs and interests of their constituents. Currently we have the following groups at the university:

Others can form as needed. Please contact us or your chain of command for so we can support you.

In summary, we hope to provide you a clear path as a medical professional. Your faith resources are central to your work as professional challenges increase, you chose to get married, family support changes, or you choose to grow spiritually. We stand by to be a resource to you.
