USU/AFRRI Command Sponsorship Program

Congratulations on your upcoming assignment to the Uniformed Services University, Bethesda, Maryland! We look forward to including you on our team of professionals. One of the Brigade's missions is to ensure you have all the resources and information you and your family need for a smooth transition.

Established by Congress in 1972, matriculating in 1976 and graduating its first medical school class in 1980, the University has a worldwide reputation as a center of excellence for medicine, nursing and public health education; and health care research. Our programs are unique, related directly to force health protection, tropical diseases, disaster medicine, military and public health medical readiness, and adaptation to extreme environments. USU prepares outstanding scientists and health care practitioners for careers in service to the nation. Students who attend USU return to their respective services upon graduation, ready to conduct cutting-edge research or provide the highest quality health care here at home, or abroad wherever our military is deployed, to support our troops in combat, peacekeeping and humanitarian missions.

Please keep your sponsor advised of your plans and relocation needs. They will assist you in making a smooth transition to USU. If you experience any delays or problems en route, contact your sponsor or the Brigade Military Personnel Office at 301-295-3423.

Again, Welcome Aboard! The USU team looks forward to your arrival.
