Mission Statement:

Learning to Care for Those in Harm's Way

Those eight words really say it all! Our University, the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, was created by Congress via the Health Professions Revitalization Act of 1972. The shortage of military physicians at the close of the Vietnam conflict, which heralded the beginning of the "All Volunteer Force", was responsible for engendering the 1972 legislation; nonetheless, Congressman F. Edward HŽbert envisioned the University to be much more than a recruitment vehicle for physicians. Rather, his vision was the establishment of the academic health center for the military.
