Learning to Care for Those in Harm's Way

 

The F. Edward Hébert School of Medicine is traditional in many ways, but it has unique tenets that make it a special place. Among its singular features is a curriculum that places special emphasis on military and public health medicine. This foundation prepares students for the important roles they will take on as uniformed physicians. Our program melds the study of basic science, the clinical practice of medicine and military leadership training to produce innovative doctors. This signature blend of education and training distinguishes USU as a leader among institutions of learning.

Our motto, "Learning to Care for Those in Harm's Way."

 

Powered by USU

USU is many things.  It is a medical school.  It is a leadership academy. It is the start of something amazing. More than anything else, USU is the sum of its people.

What does it mean to be “Powered by USU?” We invite you to watch this video and learn the story of our students.  They come from different backgrounds, and many were told that they would not succeed. Yet here they are, learning to care for those in harm’s way.

That is the power of “America’s Medical School.”
