The Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR) would like to congratulate Major Stephen Schwab on his recent acceptance
to the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania. MAJ Schwab will complete a doctoral degree in Health Care
Management and Economics with the Army’s Long Term Health Education and Training Program (LTHET).
Bostonian native and son of a Vietnam veteran, MAJ Schwab enrolled in the Reserved Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) during
his time as an undergrad at George Washington University. He spent eight years at Fort Hood with the 1st Cavalry Division.
After completing three tours in Iraq, MAJ Schwab considered exiting the service. However, he discovered his interest in resource management and
completed both a Master’s in Business Administration and a Master’s in Health Administration through the Army-Baylor University
Graduate Program in Health and Business Administration. MAJ Schwab requested a post with the US Army Medical Research and Materiel Command,
serving as a Budget Officer for two years before finding his current position with WRAIR.
Upon completing his doctoral degree at the Wharton School of Business, MAJ Schwab will return to Fort Sam Houston’s Academy of
Health Sciences and serve as an instructor for other US Army Soldiers pursuing MBAs and MHAs.
WRAIR looks forward to seeing what great work MAJ Schwab continues to contribute as he completes his time at the WRAIR and moves
forward in his career.
