USU Commandant Position

Posted on Updated on

Attached is the advertisement for this position. While it says they will consider O5 or O6 officers, I highly doubt anyone who is not a CAPT or CAPT(s) could successfully compete for it:

All applicants must submit the requested materials to CAPT Joel Schofer (contact in the global) by COB 24 SEP 2021. All applications must route through BUMED, not be sent directly to USUHS.

USUHS Research Award – Deadline Extended

Posted on Updated on

(Hint…”deadline extended” often means competition is not what they were hoping, so you may want to send your stuff in.)

Dear Program Leaders and Chairs, 

Please encourage your faculty to self nominate their research publication for the “Henry C. Wu, James J. Leonard, & Llewellyn J. Legters Awards for Excellence in Research”.

The selected work will be presented as a seminar and showcase the outstanding research work being done at USUHS. I am confident the research work will be very inspiring to all of us at USUHS.

The deadline is extended until Aug 30th. 

Let’s take part in celebrating our research!

Best regards,

Geeta Upadhyay
