School of Medicine Our Four Core Values

Our Four Core Values

1As an entity of the U.S. Government, the F. Edward Hébert School of Medicine is governed by a range of federal laws and regulations, U.S. Department of Defense instructions and policies promulgated by the President of the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. 

In addition to this legal, regulatory and policy framework, we hold ourselves to an ethical framework as well. The School’s leadership embraces four core values that guide our decisions and actions on a daily basis. Three of them appear, in one form or the other, in the creeds of the services that sustain our University. The fourth is an essential quality of any institution of higher learning.
