Faculty Information

Uniformed anesthesiologists are clinical, educational, and research leaders in and out of the operating rooms throughout the Military Health System. As the academic center, USU unites all of us in a common mission– to support the operational anesthesiology community through excellence in clinical practice, education and training, and research and scholarship. As such, all anesthesiologists who contribute to the uniformed services’ medical education or research should have the opportunity to receive an academic appointment at USU.
