Summary
In the 2 decades since its legislative establishment, proposals have been made to close the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, the Department of Defense's (DOD) medical school in Bethesda, Maryland. Those who propose closing the University assert that DOD'S need for physicians can be met at a lower cost using physicians educated at civilian medical schools. Those who propose retaining the University assert that it is needed to provide a stable cadre of physicians trained to meet the unique demands of military medicine. Following proposals in 1994 to close the University, the Congress mandated that GAO review issues related to the University and the other means through which DOD obtains physicians. Among other things, GAO was directed to examine (1) the cost of obtaining military physicians from all sources, (2) the quality of the medical education provided at the University, (3) how physicians are trained to meet the needs of military medicine, and (4) retention rate patterns among the accession programs
