Uniformed Services Spotlight


 Not everyone who comes to this university has uniformed experience. In fact, about half of USU's medical students first learn about military life on this campus.

They also gain a unique professional expertise here, because traditional medicine is taught alongside other more unique skills - like how to create a fully functional field hospital from scratch.

In the end, all of our graduates - whether receiving their first or fifth assignment orders - are ready to practice military medicine wherever duty calls.
