About

History

Although the Uniformed Services University was chartered by an act of Congress on September 21, 1972, the university story really begins decades earlier.

Education

The F. Edward Hébert School of Medicine offers doctorate degrees in medicine, doctorate and master’s degrees in public health and related disciplines, doctorate degrees in medical and clinical psychology, and interdisciplinary Ph.D. degrees in three military-relevant areas of science: molecular and cell biology, neuroscience and emerging infectious diseases. 

Research

The Office of the Vice President for Research (VPR) was established at USU to facilitate, promote and oversee the research activities at USU. This office monitors, reviews, and coordinates approvals for all matters dealing with research at the University, including the following responsibilities: identification of potential funding sources; pre-award administration; post-award administration; grant award and receipt; administration of the Program for the Protection of Human Participants in Research (PPHPR), including Institutional Review Board (IRB) review and approval; and monitoring of compliance with all federal regulations regarding the conduct of research.
