HJF Establishes Account for the Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center

The Henry M. Jackson Foundation for the Advancement of Military Medicine (HJF) has established an account in the amount of $5,000 for the Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center, recipient of the Uniformed Services University (USU) Excellence in Teaching Award.

The Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center at Fort Hood, Texas, was recognized by USU for its superior clinical training of military medical students and graduate nursing students in a ceremony on Feb. 28. The USU Excellence in Teaching Award, which has been presented to two medical treatment facilities across the entire military health system each year since 2007, recognizes outstanding administrative, clinical and teaching support provided to the university’s students.   

“On behalf of HJF, I am thrilled to award $5,000 to the Carl R. Darnall Army Medical Center for its outstanding clinical training to USU,” President and CEO Joseph Caravalho, Jr., M.D., MG, U.S. Army, Ret. “Training military medical students and graduate nursing students is near and dear to my heart—not only because HJF was authorized by Congress to support this type of work, but because I am a retired Army physician who appreciates that superior clinical training benefits our Nation’s warfighters.” 

The established account will foster continued growth of young investigators within the Military Health System.
