Leadership Training in the U.S. Armed Forces with Dr. Neil Grunberg

November 1, 2023

The U.S. Armed Forces have been making efforts to properly care for soldiers and sailors since Jonathan Letterman became medical director of the Army of the Potomac in July of 1862. Battlefield care requires skills and procedures different from civilian care.

In this episode of SoundPractice, Mike Sacopulos discusses with Neil E. Grunberg, PhD, how the U.S. Armed Forces trains physicians and promotes leadership skills for the benefit of service members.

Grunberg is the director of Leadership Research and Development, professor of Military and Emergency Medicine, and professor of Neuroscience at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland. He has been educating physicians, psychologists, and nurses for the Armed Forces and Public Health Service since 1979. He has published more than 220 papers addressing behavioral medicine, drug use, stress, traumatic brain injury, and leadership.
