Medical Education - Classes of 2013-2014
The USU School of Medicine students receive a comprehensive education in the biomedical sciences as well as additional training in the unique tenets of military health care.
They attend school year-round in order to meet the benchmarks of the medical program. Over the course of four years, students will undergo an additional 500 hours of training compared to those studying under a traditional framework.
During this time, they are challenged to learn more, because their expectation for success extends beyond medicine alone. The USU graduates must perform both as physicians and officers in the Army, Navy, Air Force and Public Health Service.
The School of Medicine program prepares students for these dual roles through innovative measures. The curriculum is grounded in academic rigor and the military and civilian faculty are dedicated to cultivating compassionate officers.
The School's dynamic model of scholarship equips the USU physicians with the unique ability to practice medicine under extreme circumstances.
