USU’s F. Edward Hébert School of Medicine believes that a diverse student body provides unparalleled educational benefits to each member of its medical school class. As the leadership academy for the military and national health system, the School of Medicine brings together students across various geographical, educational, racial, cultural, and experiential backgrounds.
As you take your seat among your fellow classmates, you will find those who come from physician families, others who represent the first generation in their family to attend college, some who are immigrants who have been recently nationalized, and those who have deep roots in their communities. You will be sitting among students who have always wanted to be physicians, others who have impressive research credentials and still others who are coming to medicine after a career elsewhere.
For all our differences though, the common thread you will find among all of our students is a commitment to serve others; your fellow students have been volunteers with the Peace Corps, educators for Teach for America, builders with Habitat for Humanity, and serving hands for homeless outreaches. They have given back to their communities and are now looking for an opportunity to give back to their nation…and their world. The unique military and medical community that they create generates camaraderie crucial to helping diversity thrive.
The USU F. Edward Hébert School of Medicine welcomes potential students of all backgrounds to apply; service to the nation is a duty and honor that knows no regional, educational, racial, cultural or socioeconomic boundaries. To learn more, click here.
