The National Center for Disaster Medicine and Public Health (NCDMPH) was established in 2008 under Homeland Security Presidential Directive 21, paragraph 38. The Center serves the U.S. Government as an academic home for the development and dissemination of core skills, knowledge and abilities, and for research on education and training strategies in the fields of disaster medicine and public health.
Through its efforts, the NCDMPH seeks to prepare the nation for natural and man-made disasters and other catastrophic public health events.
The National Center for Disaster Medicine and Public Health is hosted by the Department of Defense at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USU) -- the Nation's only federal health sciences university in Bethesda, Maryland.
