Biostatistics Consulting Center

The Biostatistics Consulting Center (BCC), a service of the Department of Preventive Medicine and Biometrics, provides statistical consulting to USUHS scientific investigators engaged in the:

  • design of studies and experiments
  • statistical and graphical analysis of data
  • choice, application, interpretation, and reporting of statistical methods
  • preparation of presentations and publications
  • revision of papers, based on referee's comments.

The purposes of the BCC are twofold: To improve the quality of USUHS research by providing statistical advice regarding study design, analysis, and reporting. To encourage collaborative research between statisticians and investigators from other disciplines.

Infectious Disease Clinical Research Program

The mission of the IDCRP is to conduct infectious disease clinical research of importance to the military through a unique, adaptive, and collaborative network, to inform health policy and practice and disseminate findings in peer reviewed literature. The vision: To substantially reduce the impact of infectious diseases in the military population through collaborative clinical research.

Occupational and Environmental Medicine (OEM) Residency

The occupational and environmental medicine residency is a two-year graduate medical education program designed to prepare physicians for a career in the specialty of occupational and environmental medicine. Occupational and environmental medicine is the medical specialty devoted to the prevention and management of occupational and environmental injury, illness, and disability, and the promotion of health and productivity of workers, their families, and communities.

Public Health and General Preventive Medicine Residency

The mission of the IDCRP is to conduct infectious disease clinical research of importance to the military through a unique, adaptive, and collaborative network, to inform health policy and practice and disseminate findings in peer reviewed literature. The vision: To substantially reduce the impact of infectious diseases in the military population through collaborative clinical research.

Uniformed Services Health Equity Collaboratory (USHEC)

The mission of the Uniformed Services Health Equity Collaboratory (USHEC) is to enhance and support the readiness of the members of the uniformed services and the health and well-being of the community through interdisciplinary collaboration to eliminate racial and gender inequity in health and healthcare delivery across the Military Health System. 

The Department of Preventive Medicine and Biostatistics (PMB) – the second largest academic department in the USU F. Edward Hébert School of Medicine – with its interdisciplinary focus in public health, global health, health services administration and policy is uniquely situated to be the catalyst for uniformed services health equity advocacy, research, thought-leadership, and knowledge dissemination.

The Defense Health Agency and Military Health System quadruple aims of experience of care, population health, per capita costs, and readiness are the guideposts for PMB to lead change in eliminating variances in health and healthcare delivery among a diverse group of active duty service members. Establishment of the USHEC that examines the complexities of pervasive variances in health and healthcare that impede a militarily ready force has never been more imperative.
