Mission Statement

The mission of the Department of Medical and Clinical Psychology includes teaching, research, and service. The Department contributes to medical student education and trains Ph.D. students and post-doctoral fellows in medical and clinical psychology. The Department's research activities focus on psychology and health (physical and mental) and on relevant biological and behavioral processes.

The Department provides service to the Uniformed Services University (USUHS), the Department of Defense (DoD), other government agencies, and the fields of health and clinical psychology.


The faculty, students, and staff of the Medical & Clinical Psychology Department at USUHS study the role of behavior, cognition, and motivation in physical and mental health. Behavior, lifestyle, cogntion, and their biological correlates play important roles in health and illness.

We are located in Bethesda, Maryland at the Uniformed Services University, and have trained medical and graduate students and conducted research since 1978.

Dr. Michael Feuerstein's research group integrates cancer survivorship work with occupational research. We seek research opportunities to improve the quality of life, particularly in the realm of work, for cancer survivors.

Dr. Feuerstein's research and clinical interests are in the application of behavioral medicine/health psychology to complex health problems. His research, consultation, clinical service, and program development activities create unique approaches to enhance health and well-being following cancer. Dr. Feuerstein also studies the interaction among medical, ergonomic, and psychosocial factors on work-related pain and its impact on function.
