USU Medical School Launches ‘Enlisted-to-Medical-Degree Preparatory Program’

F. Edward Hébert School of Medicine to Partner with George Mason University-Prince William Campus

Enlisted military service members in the Air Force and Army now have an opportunity to prepare for future careers as uniformed physicians thanks to a new program headquartered at the F. Edward Hébert School of Medicine, Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences.

The “Enlisted to Medical Degree Preparatory Program,” or EMDP2, is a 24-month program for highly-qualified enlisted service members interested in a career as a military doctor. Candidates will attend school full-time at George Mason University-Prince William (GMU-PW) campus in Manassas, Va., to prepare them to apply to medical school, while remaining on active duty. Candidates must possess a baccalaureate degree from an accredited academic institution with a minimum of a 3.2 grade point average and meet Service requirements for commissioning.

The inaugural EMDP2 class, approximately 10 students, will report to USU at the end of July to begin the program, which will include full-time medical school preparatory coursework in a traditional classroom setting at GMU-PW, structured pre-health advising, formal Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) preparation, dedicated faculty and peer mentoring at USU, and integrated clinical exposure. Students completing the program successfully will qualify to apply to most U.S. medical schools.

"We are thrilled to be launching the Enlisted to Medical Degree Preparatory Program at the Uniformed Services University and excited to be partnering with George Mason University-Prince William campus for this new educational endeavor. We have had fantastic support from the Services and by the many who wish for this program to succeed,” said Lt. Col. (Dr.) Aaron Saguil, associate dean for Admissions and Recruitment at USU’s Hébert School of Medicine. “With the EMDP2, we will be able to even better recognize the talent that exists within our enlisted--the professional backbone of the military--and provide them an opportunity to continue their aspirations to become physician-leaders in the rapidly evolving Military Health System."
