The mission of the DCoE is to improve the lives of our nation's service members, veterans and their families by advancing excellence in psychological health and traumatic brain injury prevention and care. DCoE is comprised of three centers:
PHCoE’s mission is to advance excellence in psychological health care across the Military Health System (MHS) by enhancing care quality, effectiveness and efficiencies; facilitating the translation of research to practice; and providing leadership, advocacy and implementation support.
DVBIC's mission is to serve active duty military, their beneficiaries, and veterans with traumatic brain injuries through state-of-the-art clinical care, innovative clinical research initiatives and educational programs, and support for force health protection services.
T2’s mission is to lead the innovation of mobile health and telehealth solutions to deliver psychological health and traumatic brain injury care and support to our nation’s warriors, veterans and their families.
The Defense Health Agency (DHA) is a joint, integrated Combat Support Agency that enables the Army, Navy, and Air Force medical services to provide a medically ready force and ready medical force to Combatant Commands in both peacetime and wartime. The DHA supports the delivery of integrated, affordable, and high quality health services to MHS beneficiaries and is responsible for driving greater integration of clinical and business processes across the MHS.
The mission of USU is to educate, train and prepare uniformed services health professionals, officers and leaders to directly support the Military Health System, the National Security and National Defense Strategies of the United States and the readiness of our Armed Forces. USUHS is home to many different centers and institutes, which help advance the university's research, education and public service missions:
The CDP trains military and civilian behavioral health professionals to provide the high quality care necessary to address the deployment–related needs of military personnel and their families.
The Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USU) is the nation’s federal health professions academy — akin to the undergraduate programs of the U.S. military academies at West Point, Annapolis and Colorado Springs. And like the academies, students are not charged tuition; they repay the nation for their education through service.
The Uniformed Services University's (USU) Center for Health Disparities was established in 2003 in partnership with the University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES). USU is a federal medical school training physicians for the military and civilians to conduct research in the basic and behavioral sciences. UMES is a Historically Black University (HBCU) on the Eastern shore of Maryland.
The mission of the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences is to educate, train and prepare uniformed services health professionals, officers and leaders to directly support the Military Health System, the National Security and National Defense Strategies of the United States and the readiness of our Armed Forces.

The work of the program, executed through a unique, adaptive and collaborative clinical research network, has a direct impact on force readiness by advancing clinical practice and informing health policy for military personnel. In collaboration with partners from the Department of Defense (DoD), academia, government and industry, IDCRP supports a broad clinical research portfolio within the Military Health System.
- The Walter Reed National Military Medical Center is one of the nation's largest and most renowned military medical centers. Recently dubbed "The Nation's Medical Center," WRNMMC represents the joining of the "Best of the Best" in military medicine when National Naval Medical Center and Walter Reed Army Medical Center came together in September of 2011, to form Walter Reed National Military Medical Center as decreed by the Base Realignment and Closure law of 2005.
- The NCDMPH leads federal and coordinates national efforts to develop and propagate core curricula, education, training and research in all-hazards disaster health.
