The US Army Research Institute of Environmental Medicine (USARIEM) is an internationally recognized center of excellence for Warfighter health and performance. Our research studies are conducted by scientists from our four research divisions, working in concert with one another, as well as other world-class scientists from government, industry and academia. The Military Performance Division conducts research to enhance the performance (physical, cognitive, behavioral and psychomotor) of military occupational tasks, or to prevent performance decrements due to physical overload, nutritional imbalances, environmental and operational stresses, and musculoskeletal injuries.

The participant(s) will be part of a multi-faceted research study evaluating the influence of early access to musculoskeletal (MSK) injury expertise and targeted education & training in order to reduce injury rates within the US Army 3rd Infantry Division at Fort Stewart, GA. Participants will have the opportunity to expand their skill sets and gain valuable training and experience to further their scientific development. Additionally, as part of the research, the participant(s) may contribute to efforts to:

Collect and analyze data
