MedXellence Student Eligibility

Student Eligibility


This course is being sponsored by the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USUHS) in response to the Congressional mandate that Military Health System (MHS) leaders receive education in health care management and administration.

Prospective students may be nominated by their supervisor, or they may self-nominate. In order to achieve a balanced student body, the MedXellence staff selects nominees based on service, rank, corps, and job title. Additionally, officers must have at least two (2) years of service left in order to be considered for selection.

DoD Personnel

The five-day course is intended for senior MHS executives O-4 to O-6 and civilian healthcare administration specialist equivalents who wish to be educated on MHS relevant issues that are essential when leading in a tri-Service environment. Because the participants' own experiences are critical to the learning process, we will choose a class that is professionally diverse. You should come prepared to exercise leadership in the classroom, help shape class conversation, and discuss relevant issues with current MHS leaders and USUHS faculty.
