The mission of the institution is to faithfully serve military and civilian communities through health care excellence, readiness, and professional development. We do this by developing specialty-trained physicians and health care professionals ready to support wartime and operational missions as directed by Service Departments and the Defense Health Agency. We support warfighters, their families, and the community by a commitment to the highest standards of excellence in health care and education, and by maintaining both a medically ready force and a ready medical force.
The Graduate Medical Education Committee (GMEC) and the Designated Institutional Official (DIO) are charged with oversight of the Graduate Medical Education (GME) program. As a member of the institutional governing body, the Board of Directors, the DIO, who also serves as the Director for Professional Education (DPE) and the GMEC manage the program with input from each area of the institution.

This includes assuring adequate the provisions of administrative, educational, financial, human, and clinical resources to support our programs.
