MedXellence Student Eligibility

MedXellence is Different

The single most notable factor that differentiates the Uniformed Services University MedXellence program from those of the other leading universities is the interplay of expert USU faculty and leaders in the MHS to develop a customized curriculum for MHS executives. Our curricula and custom program enable MHS executives to maximize their educational experience in the MedXellence program. Our state-of-the-art course content is based on our faculty's rigorous scholarship, while our advanced technology assures creative, flexible program delivery.

Invest in Yourself

In addition to the dialogue with our award-winning faculty and tri-Service students, your week includes refreshing opportunities to explore the many cultural treasures found at an Armed Forces Recreation Center or on the campus of the Uniformed Services University. We invite you to join us in exploring new ways to enhance your executive education and leadership capabilities through the Uniformed Services University MedXellence program. 

Our Students

MedXellence students are Arm, Navy, Air Force, and civilian providers and administrators from all over the world. This diversity of the student body, together with our world-renowned faculty and exciting and stimulating curriculum of study, provides an unparalleled educational experience in the science and practice of executive education. Our graduates take leadership positions throughout the MHS.

Who Should Attend

The five-day course is intended for rising MHS executives (O-4 to O-6 and Civil Service 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 USU faculty.
